The article reports on the findings of the Infant Aphakia Treatment Study presented by M. Edward Wilson Jr. at the Kiawah Eye meeting held in Kiawah Island, South Carolina from May 28 to 31, 2009. The study will examine the use of an AcrySof SN60 intraocular lens (IOL) in pediatric cataract patients. Wilson noted that a total of 114 infants have been enrolled into a trial comparing IOL and glasses with aphakia and contact lenses. Specifically, it will examine visual acuity and evaluate parental stress linked to managing the child's disorder.
