Cataract - Herbal Remedies | Alternative Treatment | Natural Supplements | Ayurvedic Medicine
Cataract is a clouding of the eye's lens. The lens must be clear in order to focus light properly onto the retina. But, if the lens has become cloudy, it is called a cataract. As a cataract begins to develop slowly, there are some changes in the vision at first. But as the cataract progresses, it begins to interfere with our daily activities. Cataract is a common eye disease. When the lens of the eye loses its transparency, the vision is more or less completely blocked. A cataract refers to an area of the lens of a person's eye that has become whitish and opaque instead of remaining clear. The result is that the person cannot see clearly.
Cataract normally develops as a part of the aging process. Every person is at risk eventually and it has been estimated that by the age of 75, about 70% of people will have cataracts. As the age proceeds, eye's lens slowly becomes less flexible, less transparent and thicker. Eventually, the areas of the lens become cloudy as protein in the lens begins to clump together. General factors that increase risk of developing cataracts include advanced age, diabetes, family history of cataracts, extensive exposure to sunlight, smoking, obesity, high blood pressure and previous eye injury or inflammation.
Symptoms of cataract include painless cloudy or dim vision, difficulty seeing at night, sensitivity to light, faded or yellowed colors, need for brighter light for reading, frequent changes in eyeglass and double vision within one eye. The specialist doctor i.e. ophthalmologist will closely examine the eye's cornea, iris, lens and the space between the iris and cornea.
With cataract surgery, the eye's cloudy natural lens is removed and replaced with a clear artificial lens implant. The ophthalmologist will recommend the cataract surgery procedure, recovery after surgery and possible complications of cataract surgery. Cataract surgery cost is very high and is often performed as an outpatient procedure. Cataract surgery risks and complications include infection, bleeding inside the eye, increased pressure inside the eye i.e. glaucoma, swelling of the retina and cornea and partial or complete loss of vision.
According to Ayurveda, human body positively responds to the natural healing which includes herbal remedies. It might take some long time to achieve full relief from cataract with the help of herbal medicines, but the results would last throughout the life. Ayurvedic treatment with natural remedies has long lasting effects and herbal medicines don't make a person dependent. There is no side-effect reported in most of the herbal products.
Ayurvedic or herbal treatments are becoming very popular because they are totally natural. There are no herbs that can remove the cataracts. The herbs can be used only for improving eye health and reducing the bad impacts of cataracts.
