A cataract is a clouding of the lens of the eye, which is responsible for 48% of blindness, affecting about 18 million people worldwide. Much of the damage is caused by UV light, exposure to radiation and secondary effects of diseases such as diabetes, hypertension and advanced age. These are all results of free radical damage from oxidation, which is essentially the aging process.
Try consuming rich antioxidants to reverse this damage on the eyes. Brightly colored fruits and vegetables, especially squash, spinach, broccoli, oranges, carrots and sweet potatoes are helpful for this condition. They are rich in vitamin A and C as well as beta-carotene.
