  • He is also one of the principal researchers involved in the development of a breakthrough for the treatment and prevention of senile cataract. Dr.[books.google.com]
  • Amblyopia treatment must be initiated as soon as possible. For amblyopia treatment to be effective, the amblyopic eye must have not only a clear visual axis, but also the proper corrective lenses to provide the retina with a clear image.[eyewiki.aao.org]
  • Cataract remains the commonest cause of blindness worldwide and although surgical treatment is associated with excellent visual outcomes the demand for surgery exceeds the ability of most healthcare systems to deliver timely treatment.[bjo.bmj.com]


  • Prognosis - there is no progression.[patient.info]
  • Prognosis Visual prognosis is usually guarded as the disease is often progressive. Early surgery may result in relatively good visual results in selected patients.[institut-vision.org]
  • The prognosis in patients without subvalvular aortic stenosis is dependent on the metabolic function of skeletal muscle. It varies between moderate exercise intolerance and wheelchair existence.[pediatricneurologybriefs.com]
  • Prognosis The course and prognosis of pediatric cataracts is highly variable. The likelihood and rate of progression is very difficult to predict.[eyewiki.aao.org]
  • In generalized sclerocornea, early keratoplasty should be considered to provide vision, although the prognosis is guarded. [2] It has been argued that the term “sclerocornea” should be regarded only as a sign but not a diagnosis.[emedicine.medscape.com]


  • The etiology of congen ital cataract is heterogenous. With the development of molecular biology techniques, researches on the mechanism of congenital cataract have made great progress.[ijo.cn]
  • Etiology The causes of infantile cataracts have been the source of much speculation and research. Making a distinction between unilateral and bilateral cataracts may be useful when considering etiology.[eyewiki.aao.org]
