Cataract Surgery Could Save Your Life

By Grin Eye Care on May 17, 2016
Cataract surgery may help save your life… literally.  A study, just published in the journal Ophthalmology, looked at the effect on of cataract surgery on mortality.  Across all groups analyzed, proceeding with cataract surgery, versus delaying or choosing not to have it, helped to prevent people from dying of all causes.  The study looked at over 1.5 million patients and found that people who underwent cataract surgery were approximately 27% less likely to die during the follow-up period.  The exact reason was not determined, but some possible contributing factors include better vision for driving, less likelihood of falling, more likelihood of correctly reading medication bottles properly, and improved mental health.
 
At Grin Eye Care, we have four experienced eye surgeons, so please call us for a cataract evaluation today!  Besides having nothing to fear when it comes to cataract surgery, maybe the fear of NOT having surgery will encourage patients to take the next step towards better vision and a healthier life.
