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.
In its early stages, a cataract may not cause a vision problem. Symptoms described as cloudiness could cause vision to appear blurry in spots. Over time, the cataract may grow larger and cloud more of the lens, making it harder to see.
Developing cataracts does not have to mean a loss of sight. Treatment of cataracts is more than 95% successful in restoring good vision. Lehmann Eye Center provides state-of-the-art vision services for patients with cataracts.
