If you live long enough, you will get a cataract. Cataracts can limit the ability to see bright colors, read and, most frighteningly, drive a car - especially at night. Although more than 20 million Americans 40 years and older have a cataract in one or both eyes, there is a surprising lack of knowledge about the condition among U.S. adults. In fact, a recent survey found that 22 percent of Americans did not think that they were at risk for developing cataracts in their lifetime, when in reality, more than half of all Americans will either have a cataract or have cataract surgery by age 80. This graphic illustrates similar myths and misconceptions about cataracts and eye health, along with some eye-opening facts.
