Summary of "Glaucoma following cataract surgery in the first 2 years of life: frequency, risk factors and outcomes from IoLunder2."

We investigated glaucoma related adverse events, predictors and impact at 5 years following surgery in the IoLunder2 cohort
Population based observational cohort study of children undergoing cataract surgery aged 2 years or under between January 2009 and December 2010. Glaucoma was defined using internationally accepted taxonomies based on the consequences of elevated intraocular pressure (IOP). Glaucoma related adverse events were any involving elevated IOP. Multivariable analysis was undertaken to investigate potential predictors of secondary glaucoma with adjustment for within-child correlation in bilateral cataract. Unilateral and bilateral cataract were analysed separately.
