Good question: There are some cases where cataract can develop from trauma with no known injury, and this is presumed to mean that the injury could have occurred at birth or that the injury is not remembered. However, it is unusual for this type of cataract to suddenly worsen. There are cataracts that can progress very rapidly especially in young people not from any injury or any known cause at all.
