MYTH 5: Cataracts can “grow back”.
FACT: NO. Cataracts are not a growth; they develop as the lens’s cells die and accumulate. It is possible, however, to develop a secondary, completely different cataract in the eye. Vision can be compromised when the membrane that holds the new lens implant gets cloudy, but this can be easily treated with laser surgery- a painless, 15-minute procedure that will have you seeing clearly again in no time.
