Hello, some cataract are congenital ,reason is yet to find .In old age group patients most common cause for cataract is diabetes , since he is 24 year old it could be congenital cataract . Doctor suggest operation if cataract is affecting your vision otherwise you can wait till it matures . Doctor replace lens with same kind of clean lens. You don't have to opt.
