Cataract is another example of an ocular condition much more common in patients over the age of 60 years.
About Cataract Surgery
However, cataract may affect patients of any age. Perhaps no other treatment regimen has advanced more in recent years than the treatment of cataract. Cataract surgery today allows an extremely successful alternative for patients dealing with this condition. In fact, cataract surgery is the most common of all surgical procedures in the United States. (Patients with advancing cataract may experience glare, difficulty at night, and an overall blur to their vision, as evidenced by the photo to the right.)
