To conclude, steroids should be used wisely and under the supervision of your doctor. Regular eye check-ups are required to rule out high eye pressures. Although cataracts can develop, they aren’t harmful to the eye’s health. Steroid induced cataract causes symptoms like glare and photophobia in early stages and causes a significant degree of vision loss in advanced stages. These drug-induced steroid cataracts are not reversible. Cataract can be successfully treated with a quick painless advanced cataract surgery. For this reason, the concern over cataract formation shouldn’t preclude physicians from using steroids in necessary situations.
