Cataract Surgery | Types, Complications, Recovery, Costs & More

2. A traumatic cataract

A traumatic cataract is the type of cataract that resulted from severe trauma to the eyeball.

A severe trauma could probably cause an eruption of the anterior or posterior capsule of the lens. Traumatic cataracts mostly appear just after trauma, yet they may take a few months to occur. Unfortunately, traumatic cataract is irreversible as other types of cataracts and require surgical intervention to restore vision.
