Paediatric cataract seminar

Start: 12th October 2018

Type: Seminar

Description: The global prevalence of childhood cataract is approximately 1:10,000. Therefore, this condition is not rare, and is encountered by most Paediatric Ophthalmology services in the UK. Current UK practice varies widely due to: co-existing ocular and non-ocular pathologies, the urgency of surgery, the importance of amblyopia in this age group, variable access to diagnostic tools, variations in age and severity of onset, lack of data on specific age groups and many other factors. Patient’s care often continues for many years and involves large teams, commonly in more than one centre and with surgical management centralised to tertiary referral hospitals. In this meeting, we will discuss all aspects of patient care, from identification, through diagnosis, treatment and aftercare. The day will provide valuable insights and discussion topics which will be useful for any eye care professional who comes into contact with childhood cataract.
