Cataract is multifactorial diseases associated with several risk factors and it is responsible for 50% of blindness worldwide. At present, the only remedy for cataract is surgery. However the incidence is so large that the available surgical facilities are unable to cope up with the problem because of postoperative complications such as posterior capsular opacification, endophthalmitis and uncorrected residual refractive error. In India alone around 30 million people suffer from cataract. Thus, the expense and unavailability of surgery mean that non-surgical medical therapy or nutritional treatment to inhibit the formation or slow the progression of cataracts is an important goal in experimental eye research to benefit patients and reduce the huge economic burden. The present Article reviews the role of Nutritional supplements for eyes to prevent Cataract.
