June is National Cataract Awareness Month. Cataracts are the leading cause of poor vision in adults.
Scientists think there may be several reasons for the development of cataracts; including aging, smoking, diabetes and excessive exposure to sunlight. Cataracts can also develop soon after an eye injury, or even years later. The most common type of cataract is related to aging, and more than half of all Americans age 65 and older have a cataract. Cataracts affect men and women equally, as well as all races and ethnic groups.
