This month we are focusing on senior vision loss.
This week we have been focusing on the top four causes of vision loss in seniors. We have already covered Diabetes and Age-related Macular Degeneration, and today we will talk about Cataracts. Tomorrow we will talk about Glaucoma.
Cataracts affect the lens of the eye.
Cataracts cause more blindness world-wide than any other cause. The cause of cataracts is not well-understood. It happens when the protein in the lens of the eye clumps together. Cataracts are successfully treated with surgery.
Here are two articles about cataracts for much more information.
