Congenital cataracts


A congenital cataract is a clouding of the eye's natural lens that is present at birth.Depending on the density and location of the opacification, congenital cataracts may need to be removed by cataract surgery while the child is still an infant to enable normal vision development and prevent amblyopia and even blindness.



Congenital cataracts can occur in newborn babies for many reasons, including inherited tendencies, infection, metabolic problems, diabetes, trauma, inflammation or drug reactions



Different types of congenital cataracts:



Anterior polar cataracts



Posterior polar cataracts 



Nuclear cataracts 



Cerulean cataracts
