The Future of Cataract Surgery

Over 19.34 million people are needlessly blind due to cataracts. Cataracts cannot be prevented, but they can be cured with one of the simplest and safest surgeries. Cataract Surgery was not always the safest surgery! In 600 BC, cataracts were treated with a technique called couching. The eye would be struck with a blunt object to force the zonules to break, and the lens would dislocate into the vitreous cavity.
