Detecting Cataracts Early May Lead to a Longer Life
Date:9/19/2013

Dunwoody, GA (PRWEB) September 19, 2013

A recent study done by Australian researchers and published in the American Academy of Ophthalmology showed those undergoing cataract surgery have a 40% lower mortality risk. Over half of Americans suffer from cataracts by the time they turn 80. However, many of the elderly don’t undergo any type of treatment for cataracts.

The elderly are most at risk of developing cataracts, along with smokers, those with diabetes and anybody suffering an eye injury. Cataracts are the leading cause of blindness in the United States and the visually impaired have a higher mortality risk compared to those with normal vision according to the American News Report (9-9-13).

Symptoms and signs of cataracts include:

  •     Cloudy or Foggy Vision
  •     Blurry Vision
  •     Changes in the way you see colors
  •     Problems driving at night
  •     Sudden changes to your glasses prescription
  •     Double vision
  •     Issues dealing with glare during the day
  •     Progressive nearsightedness or "second sight"

Regular cataract screenings can help prevent the build-up of protein, which causes cloudiness in your eyes. Those over the age of 60 should schedule comprehensive eye exams often. Other preventative measures should be taken, including:

  •     Eating leafy greens
  •     Eating fruits and vegetables rich in antioxidants
  •     Wearing sunglasses
  •    &
