What Is the Average Age of Cataract Surgery?

In our aging population, cataracts have become a major threat to vision. Patients everywhere are wondering when or if they’ll get cataracts. We often get asked, what is the average age of a cataract surgery?

The Common Age of Cataract Surgery Patients

It is documented that most patients who develop cataracts do so after the age of 40. Knowing that fact, and looking at statistics in the eye care world, it is safe to say that the average age of a patient needing cataract surgery is around 60. This is the midway point between when cataracts tend to develop and the average age that most humans live.
