A cataract must be “ripe” before it is removed
a. True
b. False

With older surgical techniques, it was thought to be safer to remove a cataract when it was “ripe.” With today’s modern surgical procedures, a cataract can be removed whenever it begins to interfere with a person’s lifestyle.

Therefore, B is the correct answer!
