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.

Did you know, more than 24 million Americans over age 40 are currently living with cataracts? It’s one of the leading causes of vision loss in the United States and the primary cause of blindness in the world. That’s why June is Cataract Awareness Month—a time to educate, raise awareness, and drive people to seek treatment for this all-too-common condition.

Many people do not realize that in addition to affecting their vision, cataracts can also take an emotional toll on both those diagnosed with the condition and their families. This month, take steps to get informed:
