Lens opacities of tiny blue or white color generally appear from birth through 18 and 24 months of age but may not be diagnosed until adulthood. They first appear at the outer age of the fetal lens nucleus or in more superficial cortical layers depending on the type. Infants seem can be asymptomatic but may also be visually impaired from birth and develop nystagmus and amblyopia. The opacities are usually bilateral and progressive. Lens removal may be required in early infancy but often not until the 2nd to 4th decades.
No systemic abnormalities are associated with cerulean cataracts.
