Cataract Awareness Month

Cataract is the leading cause of blindness in the world. As the U.S. population ages, interest in this topic is likely to increse. Close to 20.5 million Americans age 40 and older already have cataracts, according to Cataract Awareness Month sponsor Prevent Blindness America (PBA). By age 80, more than half of all Americans will have cataracts.
