Statin use tied to cataract development
from Fox News
The risk of developing cloudy lenses in the eyes may be linked to the use of cholesterol-lowering drugs known as statins, according to a new study. While the researchers can't prove the drugs caused the eye condition, they found that people who took statins — such as Zocor and Lipitor — were about 27 percent more likely to develop cataracts, compared to people who didn't take the medication.
