Cataract is a leading cause of blindness of children in Africa. Managing this condition so that children receive high quality surgery early and have appropriate follow up for spectacle correction and low vision assessment will ensure that children with cataract in Africa have the best possible quality of life.
This manual is an outgrowth of an “Experts Meeting on Childhood Cataract in Africa”, held at the Kilimanjaro Centre for Community Ophthalmology in Moshi, Tanzania in May 2007. The editors owe a tremendous debt of gratitude to the people who helped draft the manual, who attended the meeting and contributed to the ideas in this manual. Lisa Hamm prepared this manual in the format you see.
