Cataract

Dr. Ramesh Bhardwaj D.H.M.S  •  Dr. Puja Bhadel Bhardwaj  M.D.

  

A cataract is a clouding of the eye`s natural lens, which lies behind the iris and the pupil. 

The lens works much like a camera lens, focusing light onto the retina at the back of the eye. The lens also adjusts the eye`s focus, letting us see things clearly both up close and far away. 



Cataract Symptoms and Signs:-

 A cataract starts out small and at first has little effect on your vision. You may notice that your vision is blurred a little, like looking through a cloudy piece of glass or viewing an impressionist painting. A cataract may make light from the sun or a lamp seems too bright or glaring. Or you may notice when you drive at night that the oncoming headlights cause more glare than before. Colors may not appear as bright as they once did.

 

Causes of Cataracts:-

Ocular injury is most important cause, age related. 



No one knows for sure why the eye`s lens changes as we age, forming cataracts. Many studies suggest that
exposure to ultraviolet light is associated with cataract development; other studies suggest people with diabetes are at risk for developing a cataract. The same goes for users of steroids, diuretics and major tranquilizers, but more studies are needed to distinguish the effect of the disease from the consequences of the drugs themselves. 

 

 

Treatment:-

 When symptoms begin to appear, you may be able to improve your vision for a while using new glasses, strong bifocals, magnification, appropriate lighting or other visual aids and even surgery. but now your vision can improve without surgery and eyeglasses. no need of surgery. 

Homoeopathic medicine can cure cataract. No need of surgery. By taking medicine for short period you can improve your vision.
