Fast Facts from the WHA Information Center

June is Cataract Awareness Month.  The National Eye Institute defines a cataract as a clouding of the lens in the eye that affects vision. Most cataracts are related to aging and are very common in older people. While cataracts are one of the most common causes of vision loss, they are treatable with cataract surgery.
