Our grandson was just diagnosed with this. Has anyone experienced this? Will have surgery soon

Hi, @renm – did it sound likely from what your grandson's doctor said that he may need more surgery in the future?

Yes, eventually he will get a more permanent lens.

Hi, @renm – though currently we don't have other members who have talked about congenital cataracts, I wanted you to meet some other active members who have had cataract surgery as adults and will know something about your infant grandson's experience with having had cataract surgery and related therapy from their own. Please meet @rwinney @lioness @alamogal635 and @imallears.
@renm I hope you receive some answers I had both mine out later on in life they weren't congenital but the surgery was a snap I went home same day from the clinic I went to.. Of course you have to use drops afterwards antibiotic drops but it cleared up my vision. Good luck to your grandson

Hello. I'm sorry to hear of your baby grandson's misfortune. My cataracts were done in my forties which is a far cry from infancy. It was a safe and fairly simple procedure, one which I don't remember and that little guy won't either. I wish him all the best going forward in hopes of good vision.
Thank you everyone! It’s nice to have any type of support.
