Congenital Cataracts

A congenital cataract refers to an opacity in the lens of the eye present at birth, causing haziness in vision. Without treatment, congenital cataracts can potentially lead to blindness. The opacity may affect either the entire lens or a portion of it. Treatment, often involving cataract removal surgery, depends on the severity of the condition. Congenital cataracts can occur in isolation or as part of a genetic syndrome. Some genetic conditions with early-onset cataracts may be identified through routine newborn screening.
