June is Cataract
Awareness Month

Cathy Cataracts

Does it feel like when you look at things, they aren’t as crisp, clear, or colorful as they used to be? That even when you’re wearing glasses, the world looks cloudy and blurry? These could be symptoms of cataracts, one of the leading causes of vision loss in the United States and the primary cause of blindness in the world.

If you are one of the 24 million Americans living with cataracts, you might find that you have lost some of your independence or that you are overcome with the fear of missing out (FOMO) on the things you love—like traveling to your favorite destinations and spending quality time with your family. That's why June is Cataract Awareness Month, a time to overcome the FOMO that may be setting in as cataracts cloud your vision.

This month, take steps to get informed about your treatment options so you can remove the barriers standing between you and living life to the fullest:
