We review the epidemiology, aetiology, pathogenetic mechanisms and clinical management of neonatal cataract. Visual development and the effects of visual deprivation in the infant with congenital cataract are discussed and related to the timing of surgery. Surgical techniques and the important operative and post-operative complications are discussed. We review post-operative management and compare the different techniques available for aphakic correction, and describe the VEP changes found in patients with monocular cataract.
