    Most of them will have cataract surgery at some point in their lives. most of them probably after retirement. I can say with a pretty high level of certainty that they will have surgery well before most of the rest of the population will. This is because most would know a colleague that they would trust to give them excellent results. If they are not retired, they are also in a profession that demand excellent vision.

    Limiting your exposure to the sun would be the greatest thing that you can control as far as cataract formation. High doses of vitamin C may also make some difference as well.

    There is no way to know that percentage. 

    There is also no sure way to prevent cataracts.
