OKLAHOMA CITY, Aug. 18 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Almost everyone who lives a long life will develop cataracts at some point. As more Americans live into their 70s and beyond, we all need to know a few cataract basics: risks and symptoms, tips that may delay onset, and how to decide when it is time for surgery, so good vision can be restored.

August is Cataract Awareness Month, and the Oklahoma Academy of Ophthalmology (OAO) encourages Oklahomans to know their risks, especially people who have diabetes, smoke, or have a family history of cataract.

"Cataract surgery is a very common procedure, with a success rate of more than 95 percent," says OAO President and Oklahoma City eye doctor Amalia Miranda, MD.

Talk with your Eye M.D. about IOL options and related use of eyeglasses, so together you can select the best IOL for you."

A few simple tips will help you maintain healthy vision and make the right choices if you develop a cataract.
