Cataracts

A cataract is the clouding of the eye's natural lens.

Recent research shows that by making a few life style changes some of them quite easy - you can reduce your risk of cataracts.

  • Smoking has been shown to be a risk factor, and quitting may produce many health benefits.
  • Time spent in the sun means greater exposure to ultraviolet radiation (UV), which also has been shown to increase risk of cataracts; wear sunglasses with 99 percent or greater UV blockage and also wear a wide brimmed hat.
  • Lower alcohol consumption also may reduce risk, according to recent research.
  • Maintaining your proper weight also is important; research indicates a link between obesity and cataract risk.
