Cloudiness of the lens of the eye resulting in decreased vision is referred to as a cataract. A person with cataract experiences glare, foggy and blurred vision and sees halos around lights. Cataract may affect one or both the eyes. It is mostly age-related and is largely seen in the elderly. It can occur due to trauma, post surgery or in rare cases may be present at birth. The person complains of photosensitivity (sensitivity to light) and has difficulty reading, driving and recognizing faces due to diminished vision. Homeopathy is the safest and natural mode of treatment for cataract. In the early stage, when the cataract starts to develop, these medicines are known to retard clouding of the lens. They are equally helpful in restoring blurred vision. Thus, medicines help avoid surgery and its side effects such as infection, bleeding, and retinal detachment. Homeopathic medicines for cataract are, therefore, beneficial for the opacity of the lens and stops further progression of the disease.
