Brief Summary:
This study is designed to assess how KPI-121 1% compares to prednisolone acetate in reducing inflammation after cataract surgery in young children. Approximately half the participants will receive KPI-121 1% eye drops and the other half will receive prednisolone acetate.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Anterior chamber cell grade [ Time Frame: Day 15 ]
    Anterior chamber cell grade = 0. Anterior chamber cell grading is a way of quantifying the amount of inflammation in inflammatory eye processes. The anterior chamber cell grading is whole numbers from 0 (no cells) to 4 (> 30 cells). Higher values indicate greater inflammation.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Modified Global Overall Assessment of Postoperative Inflammation [ Time Frame: Day 15 ]
    Modified Global Overall Assessment of Postoperative Inflammation score = 0. The Modified Global Overall Assessment is a way of quantifying the amount of post operative healing that has occurred. The Modified Global Assessment grading is whole numbers from 0 (clear) to 3 (not improving or worsening). Lower values indicate greater healing.
