CORTICAL SPOKES CATARACT

Muhammad Marwat

Abstract


A 40 years old man presented with bilateral mild dimness of vision and mild glare. Diffuse and focal illumination on slit lamp biomicroscopy did not reveal any pathology. Retro-illumination on slit lamp showed faint bilateral spokes like cortical lens opacities. Retro-illumination mode on Auto-Ref/Keratometer (HRK 7000A, Huvitz, Anyang-si, Gyeonggi-do, Republic of Korea) prominently revealed these insignificant bilateral spokes like cortical opacities (cataracts). Visual acuity was 6/9 in both eyes. No intervention was advisable and the patient was reassured.
