Congenital cataract (CC)is the most common cause of treatable childhood blindness. It is responsible for 5-20% of the cases of blindness worldwide. However, the incidence of visual impairment may be higher in developing countries [1]. The prevalence of childhood cataract varies from 1.2 to 6.0 cases per 10,000 infants. Pediatric cataracts are responsible for more than one million cases of childhood blind- ness in Asia. In developing countries, such as India, 7.4-15.3% of childhood blindness is due to cataracts [2,3]. Therefore timely removal of a cataract with the subsequent fast visual rehabilitation has paramount value for children. The Congenital Cataracts take an important place in structure of blindness and low vision and are one of the main reasons for disability on sight since the childhood. Now the cataract of children is one of current problems of children’s ophthalmology considering its rather high prevalence and a significant role in structure of blindness and low vision.
