Cataract

Everything about Cataract and its Causes & Symptoms

A cataract is the development of haziness in the vision either partial or complete which gradually increases over time. Cataract affects the lens of the eye and prevents light from penetrating hence obstructing vision.

Causes:

  • Aging
  • Diabetes and hypertension of long duration
  • Ultraviolet light e.g.: pilots are more prone to the disease as they fly at high altitudes continuously
  • Infra-red radiation e.g.: glassblowers are exposed to infra-red radiation by virtue of their occupation
  • Trauma to the eye

Symptoms:

Loss of clear vision and haloes around street lights at night. In the early stages only haloes around lights at night are visible. The symptoms gradually advance causing loss of clear vision finally leading to blindness.

Prevention:

Research has proven that statins given to patients at risk for age-related nuclear cataracts (central) delay the process of cataract formation. Anti-oxidant use has not been proven to delay the process of cataract formation.

Treatment:

Extracapsular Lens Extraction: In this procedure, the lens is removed and the capsule is left intact. The process is completely safe.

Constitutional homeopathic treatment can delay the formation of cataracts in high-risk patients like pilots, glassblowers, and the aged.

Homeopathy has no role to play in the treatment of cataracts. Over-the-counter homeopathic eye drops available in the market do not do any good and lengthen the process of cataract maturation causing further problems to the patient for a longer duration. Homeopathy is not recommended in cases of cataracts.
