Foods to Help Prevent Cataracts
A cataract is the clouding of your eye's natural lens, which leads to loss of vision. Age-related cataracts are a common cause of blindness. The exact cause of a cataract is unclear, but experts suggest oxidation caused by free radicals damages proteins and enzymes in the eye's lens. Surgery is the conventional treatment for cataracts. Regularly including certain foods in your diet may help reduce the risk of cataracts or slow their progression, says All About Vision.
