What is Immature Cataract?
A immature cataract is characterized by a cloudy area in the lens of the eye resulting in poor eyesight. Immature Cataracts can impact one or both eyes and develop gradually. Protein clumps or yellow-brown pigment in the eye cause immature cataracts by preventing the lens from transferring clear images to the retina. The retina’s purpose is to transform the light into signals which are then received by the Optic nerve and passed on to the brain.
