I did not know that even children can get cataracts?!!

It is indeed uncommon for a baby to get a cataract, but it does happen. The difference is that in kids, the lens clouds over because it didn’t form properly. In adults, a normal lens just gets old and hard and yellow and finally clouds over. If you think about it, and especially if you learn how the eye develops before birth, it’s amazing that anyone ever ends up with a crystal clear lens in each eye. The process of lens formation is an intricate and miraculous ballet of cells that takes place early in the third to fourth month of pregnancy. Anything going wrong during this period of lens formation can lead the lens to become opaque.

Why did my child get cataract?

Congenital (present at birth) cataracts occur when the lens didn’t form properly. Acquired cataracts are caused by abnormal interactions among the proteins that make up the lens. Over time, these abnormal interactions cause clumping, specks, opacities and/or cloudy areas to form.

About 25 percent of the time, congenital cataracts have a genetic cause, and may accompany a metabolic, hormonal or chromosomal abnormality (e.g., Down syndrome).  Another 25 percent of the time, cataracts are hereditary, which means that the child’s mom or dad also had a cataract in childhood.

Acquired cataracts can be caused by trauma to the eye, use of steroids over a long period, diabetes or other metabolic diseases, long standing inflammation of the eyes (uveitis) or radiation therapy after cancer.

Often no reason can be found for the development of the cataracts.

Is there a way other than the surgery to correct the cataracts?

Every case is different, and our Paediatric Ophthalmologist comes up with creative solutions to fit each child. Sometimes, if the cataract represents a tiny dot on the lens, the doctor might recommend placing a patch over the unaffected or strong eye, to help strengthen vision in the affected eye, maybe with glasses if the focus is off. In other cases we use eye drops or contact lenses to dilate the pupil enough to get more light in but still keep the eye in focus. Either way, your child will be routinely monitored, to be sure that vision isn’t slipping. Only if the opacity is the lens is significant enough to cause a reduction in the vision, surgery would be required.
