What You Should Know About Cataracts

Causes

Cataracts are most commonly caused by aging. Other types include diabetic cataracts, which grow faster and tend to affect younger patients, and traumatic cataracts that develop after trauma. Chronic use of oral or inhaled steroids or topical steroids for rheumatoid arthritis can also cause cataracts.

Benefits

The development of cataracts quickly affects the quality of your vision. As night driving and reading become more difficult, it is apparent how valuable clear vision is. Replacing your clouded lenses with intraocular implants during cataract surgery can offer you all the freedoms of crisp eyesight.
