Cataracts are one of the most common eye conditions in the world and a leading cause of blindness. Although they can develop at any age, they are most common in the older generation, occurring when age-related changed in the lens of the eye causes cloudy patches to develop. There’s currently no cure for cataracts, but there is a successful treatment – cataract surgery.
Cataracts are one of the most common eye conditions in the world and are estimated to affect approximately 24.4 million Americans over the age of 40. By the time that they reach 75, nearly half of the population will have, or have had, a cataract.
