Cataract is a common disease of eyes. There is a crystalline lens in eyes which is just situated behind the iris or coloured portion of the eye. Light travels into the interior of the eye through this crystalline lens. In cataract, this lens becomes opaque,hence, seriously hampering the entrance of light into the eye. Cataracts typically progress slowly to cause vision loss and are potentially blinding if untreated. The condition usually affects both eyes, but almost always one eye is affected earlier than the other.
The first symptom of cataract is blurred vision. As the disease progresses, the patient may get double vision or spots. In the advanced stage there is a whitish discoloration in the pupil.
Common causes of cataract are aging, family history, diabetes, injury to the eye, long term unprotected exposure to sunlight, side effects of drugs, excessive intake of alcoholic drinks and vitamin deficiencies. Here we discuss some of the natural home treatment for curing cataract.
