Are cataracts found only in older people?


About half of the UK population develops a cataract by the age of 65.

One in four people over the age of 75 will develop a cataract in one or both eyes and in rare cases, infants can develop congenital cataracts.

Congenital cataracts are usually related to the mother having measles, chickenpox, or another infectious disease during pregnancy, and sometimes they are inherited.

Different types of cataracts develop as a result of diabetes related complications and diabetics are likely to develop cataracts earlier in life.
