June is Cataract Awareness Month
Cataracts are one of the leading causes of blindness in the United States. If not treated, cataracts can lead to decreased vision and blindness. In addition, the longer cataracts are left untreated, the more difficult it can be to successfully remove the cataract and restore vision. During Cataract Awareness Month in June, Blue Ridge Eye Associates is reminding our patients that early diagnosis and treatment of cataracts is critical to preserving eyesight.
