Blindness in children is a grave concern to societies throughout the world. Although there have been great advances in the field of ophthalmology in the recent past, visual impairment and blindness in children are primarily due to preventable causes. There are over 1.4 million children in the world who are blind and 17.5 million throughout the world with vision so low that their daily living activities are severely hampered. Consequently, the effect on vision, the course of treatment and prognosis can vary greatly. Cataract problems are the greatest source of preventable blindness cases. The latest World Health Organization estimates state that there are more than 200,000 cases worldwide of preventable blindness (WHO, 2014). What should you know about pediatric cataracts?
Course Objectives are:
• Understand the nature and types of cataracts.
• Learn the effects of untreated cataracts in children.
• Know the opportunities for treatment and possible alternatives.
Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
