Video: Who can get cataracts?

In this video, I explain who can get cataracts.

The most likely people to get cataracts generally are slightly older populations. So if you live long enough, you develop a certain degree of cataract.

Most people over 55 to 60 will have a mild degree of cataract. Now whether that affects you as an individual – the only way you’ll know is when you notice the symptoms. But as you get older, the more likely to develop the symptoms of cataract and they can interfere with your daily functioning of life.

The best way to see whether they are interfering, is getting a full examination and a discussion with me. And you can do that by booking an appointment using the telephone number in the end of this video.
