June is Cataract Awareness Month

LEARN MORE AND TAKE ACTION TODAY

If your vision is blurry and headlight glare is an issue at night, 
you may have cataracts.

Cataracts are a leading cause of blindness among older adults in the United States. By age 80, more than half of all Americans either have a cataract or have had cataract surgery. While most cataracts are related to aging, those with diabetes are more at risk to have them at a younger age. 
The most common symptoms of a cataract include cloudy or blurry vision, colors seem faded, poor night vision, and double vision. A cataract can occur in either or both eyes. It cannot spread from one eye to another.

To delay a cataract, our caring doctors recommend:

  • Wearing sunglasses and a hat with a brim to block ultraviolet rays from the sun.
  • If you smoke, please STOP.
  • Have a comprehensive dilated eye exam at least once a year. Your doctor can check for signs of cataract and other age-related eye problems such as glaucoma and age-related macular degeneration.

Schedule an eye exam, follow our lifestyle recommendations, and 
spread the word to your family, friends, and colleagues. Early treatment may save your vision and theirs.
