Cortical Spoking Cataracts

The top picture is the left eye of a patient and the bottom is the patient’s right eye. You can see in the pupil that there is a cortical opacity, greater in the right eye than the left. Interestingly, this patient see’s 20/20 in the right eye during the day. But at night the pupils get bigger and the light hits the cataract and causes starbursting of headlights. Very bad in the rain but nice at Christmas time when looking at lights.
