Pediatric Cataract Surgery and IOL Implantation: A Case Based Guide is a vital resource for ophthalmologists, surgeons, residents, and fellows who specialize in pediatric cataract surgery and its surgical management, as well as parents and caregivers of children with cataracts.

This comprehensive guide provides an overview of the epidemiology of pediatric cataract surgery and IOL implantation, including pre-operative evaluation and examination, surgical techniques for various pediatric cataract conditions, and expert viewpoints and case studies. The book highlights the complexity of managing pediatric lens opacities, with each chapter beginning with an introduction and case-based discussion.

The book also addresses special considerations in IOL implantation, including the uveitic patient, placement without capsular support, and cataract surgery in the developing world. The chapters offer insightful perspectives that expand on current literature without being repetitive. This book is an essential companion for any ophthalmology text discussing pediatric cataracts.
