- Local causes of complicated cataract.

Local causes of complicated cataract.
  • long standing Retinal detachment
  • Inflammatory conditions:- chronic iridocyclitis,chorioretinitis
  • Glaucoma.
  • Intraocular tumors
  • Degenerative conditions:- retnitis pigmentosa, degenerative myopia. 
  • local Drugs:- corticosteroids, pilocarpine, adrenaline eye drops.

    • Interference with lens metabolism.
    • The posterior cortex is affected early,as the posterior capsule is thin and devoid of sub capsular epithelium.
