In brief: Back of lens

This is a change in the lens transparency from the growth of material under the back, central portion of the lens.
It is typical as a complication of systemic diseases and medications like high dose steroids. It can occur naturally and usually is more common in slightly younger patients than ordinary senile cataracts.
