An IOL if there is enough residual lens capsule.  Consider an IOL glued to the sclera under a scleral flap if there is no residual lens capsule (I don't know if this is being done in chidren).  I would consider suturing an IOL.  In general ambylopa treatment is effect in children under 5 or 6.  You should discuss the treatment with a pediatric ophthalmologist.
