Pediatric kidney transplantation part 110

Children

 

Opthalmologic (Eye) care

Many children are prescribed prednisone after transplant as part of their immunosuppression regimen. Because of the risk of side effects affecting the eyes, the transplant team recommend monitoring eye health for cataracts and glaucoma by a professional. It is recommended that all children should have dilated eye examinations once  a year while they are on prednisone to monitor for the development of cataracts and/or galaucoma. If your child complains of blurry vision, eye pain or tearing he should be evaluated by a physician sooner.
