Cataract Surgery not only improves vision, but also reduce the number of Auto Crashes.
Dr. Ng, the study researcher, points out that the cataract surgery reduced the frequency of all crashes by 12.6% after accounting for other potential confounders and “the cost savings from this reduction amounted to AUD $4.3 million. Each operation saved about $150 in crash costs. By including all crashes rather than just fatal and hospitalization crashes, all possible benefits of cataract surgery were taken into account.”
