Star shaped cataracts formed in man's eyes after electrical accident

Giving him the appearance of some sort of mythical creature, a California man has developed bizarre star-shaped cataracts in both of his eyes after suffering an electrical injury whereby 14,000 volts of electricity passed through his body.  According to the New England Journal of Medicine, the 42-year-old electrician was working when his left shoulder accidentally came into contact with 14,000 volts of electricity.  The massive electrical current passed through his body, including the optic nerve, the nerve that connects the eyes to the brain.  Unfortunately, the man’s vision was impacted by the accident.  Doctors are unsure how the electrical shock caused the strange star-shaped cataracts.
