Did you know that most people over the age of 60 are at risk for Cataracts?
Cataract is the clouding of the lens of the eye. The major risk factors for developing Cataracts are:
- Exposure to Sunlight
- Cigarette smoke
- Certain systemic conditions including Diabetes

Cataracts cause blurry vision that cannot be corrected by use of glasses or contact lenses.
The risk of developing Cataracts can be reduced by the use of Sunglasses on a regular basis.
Make sure you get your eyes checked annually!
