What are the different types of cataracts?Eye Health Cataracts
I read online that there are multiple types of cataracts. What are they and what causes them to develop?
Thanks for the D2D. Indeed, there are many different types of cataracts. Some cataracts are related to genetics (congenital cataracts) while some are brought about by trauma and injury.
Other cataracts may be associated with the use of medication such as steroids. However, the most common cataracts that we see are related to degeneration from aging.
