Cataract is a leading cause of blindness of children in Africa. This manual from the KCCO addresses ways to manage the condition.

Managing childhood cataract, so that children receive high quality surgery early and have appropriate follow-up for spectacle correction and low vision assessment, will ensure that children with cataract in Africa have the best possible quality of life.

This manual is an outgrowth of an “Experts Meeting on Childhood Cataract in Africa,” held at the Kilimanjaro Centre for Community Ophthalmology in Moshi, Tanzania in May 2007.  It is also available in French.
