Pediatric cataracts continue to be a primary contributor to avoidable childhood blindness globally.

This webinar will provide information on the indications and optimal timing for surgery, delving into the critical factors that influence the decision-making process for timely and effective intervention. The panel of experts will explain the intricacies of biometry in pediatric patients, alongside a detailed look at the various intraocular lens (IOL) implantation options, considering the unique anatomical and developmental needs of young eyes.
