    Cataract/Anterior Segment

    Mature cataract. A cataract is called mature when the lens is totally opacified. A red reflex cannot be obtained; the pupil appears white. The radial spokes in this figure reflect variations in density of the radially arranged fibers in the cortical layers of the lens. Light still reaching the retina is totally diffused and will allow the perception of light but not form.
