Childhood Cataract - Causes and Risk Factors

​Childhood cataracts can occur from birth or develop later in childhood/adolescence. They can occur in isolation with no known cause.

These cataracts can also be associated with other health problems—such as certain genetic syndromes or infections within the womb during pregnancy.

Childhood cataracts may also develop following injury to the eye or medications (e.g. excessive steroid use).
