A hospital stay is not necessary. Proper reduction of inflammation is pivotal after pediatric cataract surgery—escpecially in infantile cases—as in these eyes the lack of mature blood-ocular barrier results in intense fibrinous inflammatory response to surgical stimuli [7, 8].Postoperative complications arising from intense inflammation include formation of fibrous pupillary membrane, posterior synechiae, and posterior.
