Childhood Cataract - Diagnosis

When a child is diagnosed with cataracts, it is important for the doctor to determine:

  • Cause of the cataract: Further tests may be needed—including imaging, blood and urine test, or genetic tests.
  • How the cataract affects the child's vision: This depends on the location and extent of the cataract, which affects how urgently the cataract needs to be removed by surgery
  • Whether the child has other eye abnormalities or other health problems (e.g. affecting the brain, heart etc): These will affect treatment choice and patient's outcome.
