What Are Posterior Subcapsular Cataracts?

Cataracts are common in the elderly and curable. Almost half the population over eighty is likely to experience some form of cataracts.

Posterior subcapsular cataracts develop towards the back of the lens as a single layer of cataracts. They create unique problems for the patient. The patient sees better indoors than outdoors in the sunlight. The reason is as these are central cataracts, when there is intense sunlight, the pupil becomes small, and the central cataract obstructs the vision. Indoors, when there is less light, the pupil dilates, and the central cataract does not obstruct the vision so much.

Another problem these cataracts create is glares and haloes around lights. The causes for this include aging, steroid intake, diabetes, extreme myopia, and retinitis pigmentosa. Since these can progress rapidly, these can lead to rapid visual impairment, and early surgery is needed. Identifying these cataracts is important and needs an expert to find the cause and treat it.
