Same as old age. Cataracts can be removed in the same way as we do at old age. Just like a glass lens, the eye lens is a transparent tissue once it becomes opaque we call it cataract. The biological lens can be removed and replaced with artificial lens very easily. The most important part in the treatment of early cataract is it etiology(what caused it) to avoid and rule out associated conditions.
Well practiced way. A cataract is a change in the lens light transmission which limits clarity of the vision. It can be removed whenever it getrs to the point of blocking the vision at any age. At age 22, it would be done in the standard fashion with local anesthesia, ultrasonic removal of the cataract and replacement with a synthetic lens which may have some accomodative powers as well.
Cataract surgery. Can be performed in patients of any age. While it's much less common to have a significant cataract at age 22, it can still be performed with our standard techniques with an excellent success rate.
