Low vision care for children after cataract surgery
Assessing the need
In developing countries children often present very late with cataract which means that visual outcomes can be poor. These children have the potential to benefit from low vision services but many children are not referred. The purpose of this study, which will start shortly, is to assess the need for low vision care amongst children following surgery for bilateral cataracts in Bangladesh and Tanzania.
