Cataracts & Vision Problems

Cataracts are one of the most common vision impairments worldwide; around 12 million people have cataracts, and in those age 65+, more than 90% of people will start to develop them.

  • Surgery is one of the most common ways to treat or remove cataracts, but it is not typically performed until the cataracts reach a certain stage.
  • For those who do not wish to have surgery, or want to try and turn the clock back, there are other options that work to relieve dry eye syndrome and discomfort.
  • Other vision problems also common as we age include age related macular degeneration (ARMD) and wet macular degeneration. These affect the middle part of your vision and are also very common in older people.

Did you know…

  1. New cataract treatment without surgery includes the topical use of eye drops, such as Can-C™, which contain N-Acetylcarnosine and work to normalise cataract impairment as well as dry eye syndrome, eye strain, retinal diseases and more.
  2. Not all vision problems cause blindness, although some can lead to it if left untreated for too long.
  3. Whilst cataracts are known to be caused by aging or injury to the tissue that makes up the eye’s lens, macular degeneration has no known cause.
