Longterm investigations of patients on immun-suppressive corticosteroid therapy showed that the development of advanced corticosteroid cataracts is accompanied by a marked increase of lens myopia up to 7.5 dpt. It can be assumed that this phenomenon is due to the optical effect of the discoid posterior subcapsular opacities.
