According to the Mayo Clinic, about half of all 65-year-old Americans and an even higher percentage of people in their seventies have some degree of cataracts. A cataract can be relatively mild or severe. In the latter case, it will block the passage of light to the retina, causing significant vision problems. A cataract usually develops slowly and painlessly, so vision can be affected without the sufferer realizing it.

Age-Related Macular Degeneration Infographic
Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD) affects the macula, the central part of the retina that allows the eye to see fine details. While AMD does not cause complete blindness, it makes it harder to see faces, drive, read or do close-up work. The disease can progress quickly or slowly and can lead to central vision loss in one or both eyes. In addition to being a significant public health problem, macular degeneration is expensive for patients and the healthcare system and has severe consequences for the economy. The financial toll will grow as the population aged 65 and older increases.

Proper chronic disease maintenance care for people with diabetes, regular eye screenings, and being aware of early warning signs of diabetic eye disease can help prevent diabetes-related loss of vision and reduce both diabetes and vision healthcare costs.
