Frequently Asked Questions
Are cataracts found only in older people?
About half of the population has a cataract by age 65, and nearly everyone over 75 has at least one. But in rare cases, infants can have congenital cataracts. These are usually related to the mother having German Measles, Chickenpox, or another infectious disease during pregnancy, but sometimes they are inherited.
