No. It's a question of degree. At the age of 67, the likelihood is that 80% of people will have some degree of cataracts. So, sometimes they grow very slowly from the outside approaching the center. The only symptoms he might show are only might occur only under certain lighting conditions early symptoms of cataracts are a little bit of glare and shadowing or hazy vision. These are the mild and early signs of someone with maybe the tiniest bit of cataract but is not yet hindering his vision because it is not yet growing so rapidly.
