To the Editor I read with interest the recent article by Leuschen et al1 describing the association between statin use and cataract. The article is informative; however, as thorough the study design maintained by Leuschen et al may be, introspection of the study methods does not, in my opinion, provide any useful or new information pertinent to risk of cataract in statin users.
