The human eye undergoes extensive growth in the postnatal period1. The earlier in life, the greater the absolute and relative increase; about two thirds of the postnatal ocular axial length increase takes place within the first24-30 months of life;

Dr. Jaspreet Sukhija, J09047, Dr. Savleen, Dr. Jagat Ram, Dr.Jitender Jinagal
Posterior capsule opacification (PCO) is the most common and amblyogenic complication after pediatric cataract surgery. Amongst the several foldable IOLs, hydrophobic acrylic material is proven to be the most biocompatible in children as well as adults. With a vast array of foldable hydrophobic acrylic IOLs of different manufacturers now available, we decided to compare some of them on their effect on the visual axis opacification (VAO) and compatibility after pediatric cataract surgery.

With a prevalence of 15 per 10,000 children, pediatric cataract is a major cause of childhood blindness worldwide.
FP472 : Retinal Correlates of Strabismic Amblyopia: Lessons Learned from SD – OCT with Enhanced Depth Imaging
Dr. Sanitha Sathyan, S12939, Dr. Meena Chembil Kakkitampara, Dr. Elizabeth Joseph
To compare the circumpapillary retinal nerve fibre layer thickness (RNFLT), optic nerve head parameters, macular parameters, and choroidal thickness between amblyopic and fellow eyes in patients between 5-15 years of age with unilateral strabismic amblyopia using stratus domain-optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) with enhanced depth imaging (EDI).MATERIALS AND METHODS: This was a cross sectional observational study which included 48 unilateral strabismic amblyopes between 5-15 years using Optical Coherence Tomography.

Optic neuritis (ON) can be defined as a pathologic process whereby inflammation of one or both optic nerves leads to visual dysfunction.
FP644 : Evaluation of Selective Intra- Arterial Chemotherapy for the Treatment of Intraocular Retinoblastoma
Dr. Bhavna Chawla, C08835, Dr. Fahmi Hasan, Dr. Shailesh Gaikwad, Dr. Rachna Seth
Retinoblastoma (RB) is the most common intra-ocular malignancy seen in children. The incidence is approximately i1 in 18000 live births worldwide. The average age of presentation is 24 months in unilateral cases and 12 months in bilateral cases.

A prospective study was done on 32 paired twins at Hassan. All twins admitted to NICU with low birth weight (LBW) <2000grms and/or gestational age<34weeks during December 2015 to April 2016 were screened for ROP using RETcam.Twin1 and 2 were categorized based on order of delivery. Both maternal and neonatal risk factors were analyzed.

In the growing modern medicine, cataract surgery in infants has become a common intraocular procedure. The time at which the child undergoes surgery and its relationship to the duration of deprivation has a vital role to play.

Amblyopia has a3-5%population prevalence and remains the commonest cause of monocular blindness in age group 20-50 years. Next to refractive error, amblyopia is an ophthalmic disorder with the best opportunity-cost. The conventional treatment for unilateral amblyopia is still the occlusion therapy or patching. However, there are at least6 major issues with this therapy.
