IOL No Better Than Contact Lens In Infants

December 19, 2011

December Archives: A study comparing IOL to contact lens for infants undergoing cataract surgery confirmed an earlier study that I read last year or so, namely, that remarkably, the contact lens group did just as well as the IOL group. (One would think that most infants will not wear a contact lens with any regularity- at least that’s how it was when I was a resident). In the current study following patients for one year, the IOL group had far higher incidences of complications and adverse events. Seems to me the issue is pretty settled.
