Prevent Blindness and the National Eye Institute have declared June as Cataract Awareness Month. According to the Prevent Blindness Vision Problems in the U.S. report, more than 22.3 million Americans have cataracts. Learn more about signs, symptoms, and treatment.

Prevent Blindness' guide to cataracts will help you learn about: 

  1. how cataracts develop
  2. how cataracts are treated with surgery
  3. what kind of costs to expect, and
  4. how long it will take you to recover from surgery

The information will help you be more educated and involved in your eye doctor’s treatment through diagnosis, surgery and recovery.
