Does cataract occur only in the older population?

Typically, cataract occurs in the age group of 60 years old and beyond. The severity of the lens opacity determines when a patient requires a cataract removal.
Occasionally, people in the younger age group may also develop a cataract. This can be due to autoimmune inflammatory diseases or trauma to the eye.
