Alcohol Consumption Reduces Need for Cataract Surgery

Reported in Review of Optometry:

People who partake in low-to-moderate alcohol consumption, specifically red wine, may be at a lower risk of needing cataract surgery, a new study suggests.

Compared with those who abstained from alcohol, drinkers were less likely to undergo cataract surgery. Among alcohol consumers, greater alcohol consumption was associated with a reduced risk of cataract surgery.
