Cataracts | Prevent the Leading Cause of Blindness

June 06, 2016

June is National Cataract Awareness month and awareness is vital as cataracts are the leading cause of blindness globally in people over 40 years old. Not good! Cataracts affect 22 million Americans and typically begins to affect your vision after age 60, although some develop as early as their 40’s. By the time you turn 80 you have a 50% chance of having a cataract or having undergone cataract surgery. Those are odds you don’t want to mess around with.
