Galactosemia is an unlikely cause. We all grow old so that people with congential cataracts often develop aging cataracts (nuclear, cortical) as they get older.

Thank you for your answer. My GC do see a pediatric ophthal as my daughter did when she was an a young child or adolescent. I would take every year. When she became an adult she would go to any more appt.
What type of growing cataract could be developig in the eye? She states there is some pressure. Is there a possibility of her having galactosemia?
She will be seeing a specialist today, Thank so much for your response
Only an examining Eye MD ophthalmologist-physician can tell.

Thank you so much for your answers. So, with this aging process of the cataracts. Will she ever regain vision in that eye? Will she become permanantly blind?
It is not possible to present a list of possible problems your daughter may have from your information. She needs to be under the care of a Eye MD ophthalmologist. Congenital cataracts usually remain stable but a second type of growing cataract can develop in the eye.
Your GC should see a pediatric ophthalmologist.
