Abstract This document offers an important reminder of the link between the intensity of ultraviolet radiation and cataract incidence. At Prevent Blindness America, we fully support the Environmental Protection Agency in its efforts to increase public awareness of the consequences for our eye and vision health resulting from UV exposure and the estimated health benefits of domestic and international policies to reduce levels of ozone-depleting substances in the atmosphere. Without the Montreal Protocol on Substances That Deplete the Ozone Layer and its amendments and adjustments, the economic and social burden of cataract might well have been much higher for our nation.
