According to the World Health Organization (WHO), cataracts are the leading cause of blindness world wide. Approximately 20 million people globally lose their sight due to the condition. Avoiding tobacco and limited UV light exposure can help prevent formation of cataracts. June is Cataract Awareness Month, so we encourage you to take time to have your eyes evaluated to reduce your risk of complications from cataracts and other eye diseases. If you have questions related to eye health, schedule an appointment with one of our health care providers at Aveon.
