RESULTS: Among 6,422 cases and 59,328 controls that shared at least 1 week of the critical period in summer, a 5-degree increase in mean daily minimum UAT was significantly associated with congenital cataracts
(aOR = 1.51; 95% CI: 1.14, 1.99).
Congenital eye malformations were seen in 2.2% which, comprised of congenital cataract
(38%), congenital nasolacrimal duct obstruction (10%), congenital glaucoma (9%) and congenital ptosis (8%).10 Our study has 22% frequency of congenital cataract
and 20% for anomalies of nasolacrimal apparatus with 98% having nasolacrimal duct obstruction.
