There are several types of cataracts including:

  • Age-related cataracts: Cataracts related to aging are the most common type of cataracts.
  • Congenital cataracts: Some babies are born with cataracts, while older children can develop them. While some congenital cataracts don’t affect eyesight, others need to be removed because they can harm vision.
  • Secondary cataracts: Secondary cataracts occur because of a disease like diabetes. Steroid use has also been known to cause secondary cataracts.
  • Traumatic cataracts: An injury to one or both eyes can cause you to develop a traumatic cataract. A traumatic cataract can happen either right after the accident or several years later.
