Boston Children's Hospital's Ophthalmology Department is part of a multi-eye center study to determine how best to treat infants once the cataract is removed with the goal of attaining normal vision: contact lenses or surgical placement of a plastic lens called intraocular lens. The Infant Aphakia Treatment Study aims to determine which of these two methods is the best method to focus a baby's eyes following cataract surgery. The study will follow infants between the ages of four weeks and seven months who were treated for cataracts for five years.

The future of pediatrics will be forged by thinking differently, breaking paradigms and joining together in a shared vision of tackling the toughest challenges before us.”
