Aphakic and Pediatric contact lenses

Aphakia due to congenital cataracts or trauma is the most frequent indication for fitting very young children in contact lenses today. To insure proper development of the child”s visual system, it”s imperative to restore vision very soon after congenital cataract removal. Cataract surgeons generally don”t insert intraocular lenses in children under 2-3 years old during the lensectomy. The resultant aphakia is best corrected with contact lenses. Contact lenses may be worn indefinitely if it is determined that the eye doesn”t have the architecture to support an IOL the posterior capsule in children is very fragile. A secondary IOL may be implanted when the eye has developed and/or the child becomes contact lens intolerant.
