Has your vision become gradually hazy or dim, without any noticeable eye pain? Do colors appear dull or less vibrant than they used to? It might be cataracts.

According to the National Eye Institute, approximately 50% of all Americans will either have a cataract or will have had cataract surgery by age 80.
