This book highlights various pediatric cataracts and their clinical presentations, along with a wealth of high-quality images collected over two decades. Offering a precise guide to illustrative interventions, it contains images collected pre-operatively, intra-operatively and post-operatively using slit lamp or microscope integrated cameras. The book covers congenital, developmental and traumatic cataracts, along with other rare morphologies. It presents selected challenging clinical situations, along with surgical management steps that draw on high-quality images.
Separate chapters address recent advances in the field of pediatric cataracts, e.g. ultrasound biomicroscopy, lenticular abnormalities, intraoperative rhexis assistant, plasma blade/ diathermy, vascular cautery in cases of persistent fetal vasculature, operative room aberrometry, and optiwave refractive analysis. Given its scope, the book offers a valuable resource for practicing general and pediatric ophthalmologists, researchers and students alike.
