How to cure cataracts naturally? This is a question that we have received a lot recently. In fact, there is no scientifically recognized natural cataract treatment that can cure the disease and restore vision. Cataracts are a phenomenon in which proteins gather in clusters, creating opaque areas in the lens, causing the light passing through to be scattered and unable to focus on the retina. Cataracts can cause impaired vision and, if not treated promptly, can lead to blindness. The cause of cataracts can come from age, congenital conditions, systemic diseases, exposure to ultraviolet rays, use of stimulants, etc. Until now, cataract surgery is the only method recognized to be able to effectively treat this disease. Myths that are spread by word of mouth about this disease can delay patients' access to effective treatments, so stop believing and do not follow the following 5 MYTHS to protect your health. your own eyes and those of your loved ones.

Cataracts are the leading cause of blindness

Myth 1: A healthy lifestyle can reverse the progression of cataracts

A diet supplemented with nutritious foods, drinking lots of water, wearing sunglasses when going out to protect eyes from the harmful effects of sunlight and saying "no" to tobacco are "word of mouth" solutions. in the natural treatment of cataracts.

However, these are essentially only measures to prevent and slow down the progression of cataracts and are not effective in curing the disease and restoring the patient's vision. When cataracts appear in the eyes, even if people change their lifestyle to be healthier, they cannot reverse this condition.

Lifestyle changes are only effective in preventing cataracts

Myth 2: Cataracts can go away if left unattended

This is an unscientific and useless proposal. When detecting suspected signs of cataracts, patients need to go to ophthalmology facilities to be examined, diagnosed and advised by a doctor on an appropriate treatment regimen.

A diagnosis of cataracts does not always mean that the patient needs immediate surgery, however, cataracts will still progress over time and seriously affect the patient's vision. patient if not treated promptly. The earlier treatment is initiated, the more likely the patient is to achieve a good prognosis and minimize the risk of post-operative complications.

Cataracts do not go away on their own

Myth 3: Cataract treatment is effective without surgical intervention

Although there is some ongoing research regarding non-surgical cataract treatments, at this time, none have been proven effective or applied practically in treatment.

Therefore, patients should avoid eye drops or oral medications that the seller promises to "cure cataracts" but of unknown origin, so as not to "lose money".

Surgical intervention is the currently recognized cataract treatment method

Myth 4: Use apple cider vinegar to treat cataracts

One of the widely spread misconceptions about home remedies for cataracts is that of using apple cider vinegar to reverse cataracts. Vinegar and apples have good antioxidants, so they are often combined for use in the diet to help prevent cataracts.

However, this does not mean that apple cider vinegar is proven to reverse the condition or effectively treat cataracts.

Apple cider vinegar has not been proven effective in treating cataracts

Myth 5: Cataract surgery is time-consuming and painful

Currently, cataract surgery methods cause almost no pain because the eye has been numbed beforehand, the procedure time is quick, within 15 - 20 minutes and you can leave the hospital the same day. .

To perform cataract surgery, an ophthalmologist removes the cloudy natural lens and replaces a new, artificial lens in the eye. Popular and safe surgical methods today include Phaco and Laser Cataract.

Phaco surgery is performed by crushing the cloudy lens with high-frequency ultrasound waves and sucking it out, then replacing it with an artificial lens to restore vision.

Phaco surgery has been proven safe and effective over many years around the world with advantages such as no pain, no stitches, no need to stay in the hospital, quick recovery of vision, and work as usual the very next day.

Cataract Laser surgery method has the same mechanism as Phaco surgery, but replaces some manual operations with Femtosecond Laser, bringing outstanding advantages such as incisions that follow the eye's physiological curve, without causing pain. Secondary astigmatism, combined with astigmatism treatment in the same surgery, the ultrasound energy used to suction the lens is reduced by 50% compared to Phaco, limiting corneal edema.
