Definition

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. In general, the more posteriorly located and dense an opacity, the greater the impact on visual function. CTRCT33 has juvenile-onset and the opacities are restricted to the cortex of the lens, not involving the nucleus.
