Glaucoma surgical procedure could be necessary to control ocular pressure and preserve vision in the outcome of cataract procedure. Tsai reported a progressive fibrosis syndrome after cataract surgery (or tube for glaucoma surgery) that could lead to a anterior chamber fibrosis causing entrapment and displacement of the intraocular lens. An Fig. 2 Classical intraocular lens implanted in a congenital aniridia patient with severe ocular surface impairment 5 Clinical and Surgical Management of Cataract in Congenital Aniridia 43 endothelial decompensation is also observed.
In younger children, it may be difficult to assess the vision accurately, and specialized testing for visual acuity may be performed. In most instances, a complete ocular examination, including slit lamp examination, tonometry, gonioscopy, and optic nerve evaluation, can be performed in the office in children over the age of 5 years old and, with some training, in children younger than 5 years old. In aniridia patients, it is important to assess the cornea for aniridic keratopathy and the lens for cataract.
