JUICES PREVENT CATARACT

CATARACTS CAN BE DEFINED AS A KIND OF EYE DISEASES WHICH CAN LEAD TO BLINDNESS IF NOT FOUND AND TREATED ON TIME.

I used to think that Cataracts are one of the prices we pay for growing old until I learned that children equally suffer from this eye disorder.

Some children develop cataracts, called 'Congenital cataracts', before or just after birth: these are usually dealt with differently from cataracts in adults.

You may read more of this subject from some medical books.

Naturally, cataracts in older people start early in one eye and then gradually spread to the other. The word used by eye experts or specialist is 'Mature' That means that the two eyes can not be operated at the same time. The surgeon will first operate on the eye that is bad and then wait for the other to mature before it can be operated upon. This usually takes about six months to one year.

I had my own first operation in April 2004 and had to wait for almost a year to allow the other to mature for it to be operated in January 2006.

DEFINITION OF CATARACT: According to Wikipedia ,the free encyclopedia, A cataract is defined as "a clouding that develops in the crystalline lens of the eye or in its envelope( lens capsule),varying in degree from slight to complete opacity and obstructing the passage of light".

Early in the development of age-related cataract,the power of the lens may be increased, causing near-sightedness (myopia), and the gradual yellowing and opacification of the lens may reduce the perception of blue colours.

Cataracts as I have already said starts slowly with loss of visions and graduate into blindness if not found and treated.

There are what are described as Senile cataract and Morgagnian cataract. Morgagnian cataract can cause severe inflammation if the lens ruptures and leaks.If not treated, this may cause what is called Phacomorphic Glaucoma.

JUICES THAT CAN HELP TO PREVENT CATARACTS:

CANTALOUP JUICE: Cantaloup juice is very rich in beta-carotene which provides the natural Vitamin A to reduce t5he risk of developing cataracts and protects your vision.

CARROT JUICE: Carrots contain lots of vitamin A which offers powerful nourishment to the eyes.

SPINACH JUICE: Spinach juice is excellent source of vitamin A which is super beneficial to for the eyes.

WATERCRESS JUICE: Watercress juice is also loaded with vitamin A and beta-carotene which is needed for healthy eyes.

PARSLEY JUICE: Parsley juice is very effective in preventing eye diseases such as cataracts and eye conjunctivitis.

Other fruit and vegetable juices that help in preventing cataracts are Cherry and Celery juices.
