Cataract Symptoms – Depression is a Side Effect – Video

Cataract Symptoms

Cataract Symptoms have a side impact – older adults who are more likely to have symptoms of depression, reports a study in Optometry and Vision Science, the official journal of the American Academy of Optometry.

The link between cataracts and depression is independent of other factors, and appears strongest among older adults with lower education, according to new research by Haifang Wang, MSc, of Soochow University, Suzhou, China, and colleagues. They write, “[O]ur study sheds further light on the complex relationship between aging, vision loss, cataract, and depression and suggests that there may be a role for cataract surgery in improving mental health in the elderly.”
