After 72 very nearsighted years, 55 of them spent wearing Coke-bottle glasses, Jane Quinn of Brooklyn, N.Y., is thrilled with how well she can see since having her cataracts removed last year.
"It's very liberating to be able to see without glasses," Ms. Quinn told me. "My vision is terrific. I can even drive at night. I can’t wait to go snorkeling."
And I was thrilled to be able to tell her that the surgery very likely did more than improve her poor vision. According to the results of a huge new study, it may also prolong her life.
