The article discusses research which compared contact lens with intraocular lens correction of monocular aphakia during infancy. It references the study "A Randomized Clinical Trial Comparing Contact Lens With Intraocular Lens Correction of Monocular Aphakia During Infancy: Grating Acuity and Adverse Events at Age 1 Year," by the Infant Aphakia Treatment Study Group, published in the May 10, 2010 issue of "Archives of Ophthalmology." The randomized clinical trial involved patients with unilateral congenital cataract.
