Cataracts Are the Leading Cause of Blindness in Adults Worldwide.

Updated: Oct 5, 2023

Most people have cataracts to some degree by the time they are 90 years old, and while older people are more likely to develop cataracts, younger people can get them too.

Some people are more at risk of developing cataracts, including those who have:

• A family history • Diabetes, smoke or have used corticosteroid medications for long periods • Spent a lot of time in the sun without good eye protection • Had eye injuries

Cataracts can make your vision blurred or distorted, make you sensitive to glare, or give you the sense of seeing double. If you have cataracts, you may also have trouble reading, driving at night or seeing faces or other details clearly.

In most cases, cataracts can be successfully treated and vision restored.

For cataract treatments, Doctor Young uses the latest measuring equipment (Swept Source Optical Coherence Tomography) to achieve precise eye measurements. His practice uses the latest technology to assess and improve eye health, achieving the best possible outcomes for his patients.
