Cataract 6, multiple types
An opacification of the crystalline lens of the eye that frequently results in visual impairment or blindness. Opacities vary in morphology, are often confined to a portion of the lens, and may be static or progressive. CTRCT6 includes posterior polar and age-related cortical cataracts, among others. Posterior polar cataract is a subcapsular opacity, usually disk-shaped, located at the back of the lens. Age-related cortical cataract is a developmental punctate opacity restricted to the cortex. The cataract is white or cerulean, increases in number with age, but rarely affects vision.
