Cataracts a Major Cause of Blindness Among Elderly in Rwanda

Statistics from the Ministry of Health show that 1% of the population aged 50 and above become blind because of cataracts. A cataract is a clouding of the lens of the eye, which delays or prevents the passage of light. Most cataracts are related to aging, although children may be born with the condition.
