CATARACTS – Globally still the leading cause of blindness despite being fully treatable. In fact, cataracts are preferably treated when they are not too hard and haven’t yet caused total blindness. Contrary to what I’m commonly asked, a cataract isn’t something that grows in or on top of the eye. Rather, it is the eye’s own natural lens that becomes opaque. These opacities are caused by damage to the lens’s crystalline fibers due to aging, metabolic disorders, trauma, etc. Our latest social media feeds focus on some general info and updates related to cataracts.
