Healthy Habits: Cataracts

Cataracts are one of the most common eye health conditions associated with aging. Today, more than 24 million Americans age 40 and older have cataracts.

I have a chance to post this interview with Dr. Lawrence Woodard, consultant to Alcon and Medical Director of Omni Eye Services in Atlanta. He can discuss the new Alcon survey for Cataracts Awareness Month.

Findings show:  
  • Many people surveyed report that cataracts make performing simple day-to-day activities more difficult
  • Cataracts bring about a range of emotions before and after surgery
  • There is a disconnect between people’s perception of life before cataract surgery and their experience after
