- A cortical cataract is characterized by white, wedge-like opacities that start in the periphery of the lens and work their way to the center in a spoke-like fashion. Symptoms often include problems with glare and light scatter at night.
- A Subcapsular Cataract occurs at the back of the lens, adjacent to the capsule in which the lens sits. People with diabetes or those taking high dose of steroid have a greater risk of developing a sub capsular cataract.
