Summary

Cataracts are very common in older adults. Over time, cataracts can cause vision loss and make it harder for people to do everyday activities. Encouraging older adults to get regular dilated eye exams, raising awareness about cataracts and treatment options, and reducing risk factors can help reduce vision loss from cataracts.
