The main purpose of this study is to describe the visual outcomes in children with bilateral cataracts undergoing small incision cataract surgery and is mainly focused on children with bilateral cataracts from poorer backgrounds who tend not to receive adequate and timely medical attention. This could lead to issues such as amblyopia. However, it is important to provide surgical care even at a later date to afford some visual redemption. When affordability is the weakest link in the treatment, a manual small incision cataract surgery (MSICS) can be an ideal manner to treat bilateral cataracts. In this study, we highlight the good visual outcome post-MSICS with polymethylmethacrylate lens implantation, primary posterior capsulotomy, and anterior vitrectomy in children with bilateral cataracts who have presented at ages beyond 5 years.
