A cataract is a clouding of the lens in the eye which leads to a decrease in vision. Cataracts often develop slowly and can affect one or both eyes.
Cataracts may be
– partial or complete,
– stationary or progressive, or
– hard or soft.
The main types of age-related cataracts are nuclear sclerosis, cortical, and posterior subcapsular
The severity of cataract formation, assuming no other eye disease is present, is judged primarily by a visual acuity test.
– Avoid UVB exposure and smoking
– wearing sunglasses
– adequate intake of antioxidants (such as vitamins A, C, and E)
Surgery is the only Treatment of cataract in allopathy, but complications like blindness after cataract surgery is the biggest risk for undergoing surgery
In homoeopathy there are some medicines which are very effective in cataract
Cineraria maritima is very helpful in preventing early cataract
