Wrong.  The leading cause of vision loss in seniors is age-related macular degeneration,which is largely untreatable, not cataracts, which are treatable.  So yes, there will certainly be a surge in baby boomers who experience sight loss in the coming years and need help to remain independent.

Yes, you will.  The prevalence of blindness may increase (and, given treatments for cataracts these days, even that's unlikely, since that's the "primary acquired blindness of aging") it will still be a very small minority of the population as a whole that is blind or visually impaired.

Always remember that computers are just glorified light bulbs - they rarely fail in continuous use and usually go pop when turned off and on.
