Cataracts are the leading cause of blindness in the world and a significant cause of vision loss in the geriatric population. Vision loss affects patients' activities of daily living (ADLs) and quality of life. Cataracts are associated with risk factors such as increased age, diabetes mellitus, and steroid use. It is important for physicians to recognize that patients may not fully understand how cataracts contribute to vision loss and may attribute it to an incorrect eyeglass prescription or other etiology. This video covers cataracts in aging patients, who frequently have additional comorbidities or healthcare considerations to take into account that a non-geriatrician may not be trained to factor into care
