  • Can Lyme Disease Cause Cataracts or Clouding of the Lens?


    Question:

    Can Lyme disease cause cataracts or some other form of clouding of the lens?


    Answer:

    Lyme disease itself does not cause cataracts. However, it can cause many inflammatory conditions in the eye. That inflammation (swelling) and the treatments for it can lead to earlier cataract formation.
