Here's some more information for you during Cataract Awareness Month. It appears that the rate of cataract diagnosis has risen ~19% in the U.S. since the year 2000. Remember our post from the other day about cataracts? Everyone who lives long enough will develop a cataract! At least 50% of those people who develop cataracts will go on to have surgery, and it's probably also true that if you live long enough you will need your cataract out!
Here's the link for the recent story with info from the AAO. Give us a call at SkyVision Centers if you have any questions about cataracts!
