In brief: Congenital: disable?

Congenital Cataract can cause amblyopia/lazy eye: occurs when eye does not have visual input to the brain for the connection to develop.
Disability depends on severity of cataract & vision loss, so it depends on vision & visual field. More info: eyedoc2020@blogspot.com

In brief: Depends

A congentital cataract is a cloudiness of the natural lens that is present at birth.
The opacity and resulting blurring of vision vary greatly from not-symptomatic to severe. The most severe types necessitate surgery in the first year of life to prevent amblyopia (lazy eye). Visual disability has a legal definition of corrected vision in better eye of worse than 20/200.
