Two month Coimbatore baby undergoes cataract surgery
A two month old baby underwent cataract surgery at the Vasan Eye Care Hospital. The child had complaints of white reflex in both eyes and closing both eyes on exposure to bright light.
Sandhya (name changed) was brought to Vasan Eye Care Hospital by her parents who hail from Tirupur. A further examination was conducted under general anesthesia to study the fundus, where the examination was done to see whether the optic nerve and retina are normal or not. The child was put under general anesthesia and Dr L Srinivasan, Medical Director, Vasan Eye Care Hospital, Coimbatore removed the cataract from both the eyes of the baby. The child was able to follow the light the next day itself after the surgery. The parents of the baby were advised to go for vision rehabilitation. As the child grows it will have to do visual exercises to stimulate the visual cortex in the brain which will improve the vision of the child.
