Types of Cataracts
Cortical cataracts develop as wedge-shaped streaks around the outer edges of your lens. These wedges can grow over time, eventually affecting your entire lens.
Posterior Subcapsular Cataracts
Posterior subcapsular cataracts develop at the back of your lens, creating a small opaque area directly in the path of light reaching your retina. This form of cataract can develop quickly, causing glare from lights and reducing your near vision.
