An AARP Survey finds that many people are misinformed about cataracts and cataract surgery. As a result, it separated some facts and myths for us to better understand this topic.
For example, many believes that cataract surgery is painful. However, with sedation used during the surgery, it should not be be painful, and 80% of the people who received the surgery said it was easier than expected according to the AARP.
Many also believe that cataracts is only an eye problem that isn't related to your overall health. However, many believe that diabetes and high blood pressure have links in the formation of cataracts.
Finally, a lot of people put off surgery because cataract is a slow progressing disease, and that they believe they will not go blind. However, if it progresses for long enough, then the cataract will be more difficult to operate on.
