A third form, although separated intoquite a series of groupings, consists oflocalizations in various parts of the lens.Opaque stripes extending from pole topole, and often combined with the cen- tral and the zonular forms, are knownunder the name of spindle-shaped^ orfusiform cataract. Minute dots, usu-ally mostly situated in the central por-tion of the lens, and frequently groupedin the anterior cortex, are known aspunctate cataract. Small spheroidalopacities in the nucleus, of congenitaltype, have, by some, been described ascentral cataract. As a rule, they are allmere concomitants of gross intra-ocularpathological change. Zonular opacities situated between thenucleus and the cortex of the lens, bothof these portions being transparent, arenot uncommon. At times they mayprogress as a series of minute opaque

Usually it is binocu-lar, but it may occur in but one eye, andalmost without exception is but veryslowly progressive, though cases in whichthe opacity has become total have beenreported. Upon account of the situa-tion of the main opacity or opacities,vision is usually markedly disturbed,necessitating either artificial mydriasis,iridectomy, or lens-removal.
