A cataract is a cloudy area in the lens of the eye. Apart from congenital cataracts which are present since or shortly after birth, the rest are considered to be adult cataracts. There are three types of adult cataracts: immature cataracts, where the lens has some clear area; mature cataracts, where the lens is completely cloudy and becomes opaque; and hyper mature cataracts, a condition in which the lens tissues splinter off and leak through the surface covering.
Cataracts lead to decreased vision even during the day. Similar changes occur in both eyes with a cataract, but one eye may be worse than the other.
Mild clouding of the lens usually occurs after 60.
Contributing factors include:
- Eye injury
- family history
- exposure to ultraviolet rays
The symptoms of cataracts include:
- Foggy vision
- double vision
- difficulty in night vision
- loss of color intensity
- sensitivity to glare
- inability to see shapes
The most effective non-surgical cataract cures are:
Apply cooling oils over the head and massage regularly. Let the oil sink into the scalp. This relieves and de-stresses the eyes and the vision becomes clearer. This is especially important for people who are exposed more to the sunlight, for people who watch more TV, or for people who sit staring onto the computer screen. These cooling oils also enhance the night’s sleep.
Apples, oranges, grapes, and pomegranates are great for people with cataracts. In addition to these is the wonderful banana which is also beneficial for catarcts. These fruits have the extra benefit of keeping away other diseases.
Vitamin Supplements are an effective antidote to the progression of cataracts.Some of the best alternative, natural treatments for catarcts include:
Diet: Almost every disease is linked to some element of diet, and cataracts are no exception. Greens, green veggies, and fruits are very good for eyes.
Juices: Oranges and grape juice can have a positive effect on eyes.
Carrots: Carrots or carrot juice help stave off cataracts.
Garlic: This is a wonderful treatment for cataracts as it cleanses the lens of the eyes. Apart from this, in alternative medicine or natural treatments, garlic is said to arrest and inhibit cancer.
Aniseeds, powder of cardamom with warm milk, powder of almond, pepper, sugar candy, and many more are the best natural treatments for cataracts.
