  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

We evaluated the visual outcome of bilateral con-genital cataract in a series of 31 patients who were operated before 15 years of age. The cases were divided into two groups: one with nystagmus and the other without nystagmus at the time of surgery. Factors which might affect the visual prognosis wereevaluated for each group.

The group without nystagmus (16 cases), the onset of which was generally late, rarely manifested ocular abnormalities other than cataract and result-ed in good visual prognosis even if cataract surgery and correction for aphakia were performed at an advanced age.
