The development of a lens in intrauterine life reacts to any insults by losing its clarity and developing opacity, which manifests as congenital or developmental cataract. Developmental mixed morphology cataracts are seen when there is occurrence of multiple forms of cataracts in a single crystalline lens. Although the prevalence of mixed morphology cataract is 23%, this combination of blue dot cataract with lamellar cataract has never been reported in the literature before, as per our knowledge. The blue dot and lamellar cataracts develop in childhood and progress throughout life. Cataract extraction is rarely necessary before adulthood and is mainly managed with periodic cataract progression assessment. In this manuscript, we have studied the morphology of this mixed morphology cataract with anterior segment imaging tools to throw more light on their optical properties and densitometry.
