My mother get cataracts. I try to search any solution for removing cataracts in many references. I found a medcine "catarlent". I use it for treat this. The result, catarac is still there. According to any reference, "catarlent" just slow down the growth of this cataract. Is cataract be able to be treated without cataract surgery? Any recommendation?

For your kind information, reyornillo,cataract is not formed due to damage of any cells in the eyes, rather, it is formed due to coagulation of the lens proteins which in early stages may be reversible but soon gets irreversible and surgery is then the only choice.

Cataract cannot be cured by any medication. Surgery is the only choice for it. Cataract surgery is now very much advanced. Earlier the lens was removed making the person aphakic so that he could not use binocular vision and had to use a thick glass,moreover he had to use separate glasses for distant and near vision. Cataract surgery being so much sophisticated now a days, an artificial lens is implanted in place of the natural lens which is of course removed in the process. So there is no problem in binocular vision and like any other normal person he can use a single glass for both distant and near vision. So if any one has his lens cataractous, he would be mentally prepared for a surgery. Never leave it neglected as it may burst out causing iritis as well as phacolytic glaucoma and also swelling up of the cataractous lens may block the angle of the anterior chamber of the eye causing phacomorphic glaucoma. So always seek the advice of an ophthalmologist before taking any decision from your end.
