Papers we deemed relevant on the topics congenital and pediatric cataracts, glaucoma, and cornea have been reviewed. Concerning pediatric glaucoma, only a few articles have been published; except for one interesting paper about van Lohuizen syndrome, most of the emphasis is given to forms of glaucoma associated with anterior segment malformations and with secondary glaucomas following pediatric cataract surgery. Most of the articles reviewed here are about pediatric cataract and are mainly concerned with the debated question of treatment of pediatric aphakia; lensectomy with vitrectomy remains the most commonly used technique today for pediatric cataracts. Implantation of intraocular lenses is recommended for children over 3 years of age, especially for children with monolateral forms; epikeratoplasty using nonlyophilized tissue seems a promising alternative to implantation.
