This August issue of Clinical and Experimental Ophthalmology includes two studies of surgical outcomes for quite different paediatric eye diseases. Landau Prat and colleagues1 report on the results of silicone sling frontalis suspension in a group of 174 children with myogenic congenital ptosis who were operated upon at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (Philadelphia, PA, United States). Hansen and co-workers2 present the biometric and refractive results of surgery for congenital or developmental cataract in 56 children who were treated at Rigshospitalet (Copenhagen, Denmark). With this editorial, our paediatric ophthalmology Section Editors are showcasing other interesting papers in their field that have appeared recently in the journal.
