June is Cataract Awareness Month. Cataracts are the leading cause of blindness in US older adults. There are different types of cataracts but the most common type changes the lens of the eye so that light no longer efficiently transmits through the lens. Like a dirty car windshield, it effects how we see things. Regular eye exams will monitor the status of your lenses to ensure it's not significantly impacting your vision and your lifestyle. We educate our patients on the impacts of cataracts, what they can do to minimize the impacts, and their options.
