The study investigates whether placing an antibiotic inside the eye at the end of cataract surgery in children will reduce the amount of fibrin formation (fibrin formation can block the pupil and reduce vision). We hypothesize that the fibrin is caused by a low-level infection and could be prevented by the antibiotic.
