Leading Cause of Blindness

The leading cause of blindness in the world is age-related vision disorders. Cataracts, macular degeneration, glaucoma, and diabetic retinopathy account for well over 50% of all vision loss in the country and in the world, providing one more reason you should commit to annual eye exams after the age of 60. When caught early on, these diseases can be treated for complete correction or to slow their progression. It becomes much more difficult to effectively address these disorders once vision loss has occurred.
