Cataract Awareness Month

June as Cataract Awareness Month. Cataracts are the leading cause of vision loss in the United States, and it is the leading cause of blindness in the world. There are 24 million Americans over the age of 40 who are affected by cataracts, so it seems fitting that an entire month should be dedicated to education and awareness.

Ophthalmologist, Dr. Nelson of Southern Eye Center, joined the Good Things conversation to talk cataracts and effective treatments.
