Risk factors include:

  • Aging
  • Siblings or family members with cataracts
  • Certain medical diseases (e.g. diabetes)
  • History of eye surgery or trauma
  • History of radiation on the upper part of the body
  • Sun exposure, particularly if eyes are not protected with sunglasses.

If you have any of these risk factors or suspect a cataract, please schedule an appointment with your ophthalmologist.
