Are you planning to have cataract surgery, but need some more information first? Here are some interesting cataract surgery numbers that might help.
One perhaps surprising number is the fact that age-related cataract only accounts for 48% of the world’s blindness (18 million people).
Annually, about 300,000 cataract surgeries are performed in the UK. It’s a common eye condition and the most common eye surgery in the world.
Most of the people I meet at an appointment are nervous about having eye surgery. Or, they may have concerns regarding their cataract surgery. That is normal.
