One in four people will develop cataracts over the age of 75. Cataracts are seen as a normal problem of aging however there are some ways to delay cataracts developing:
- It is recommended to wear sunglasses or a hat with a brim to block ultraviolet sunlight to protect eyesight
- Smoking damages the eye – patients should stop smoking to prevent vision damage and complications after cataract removal
- Research suggests that good nutrition can help reduce the chance of developing cataracts. Green leafy vegetables, fruits, and other foods rich in antioxidants are strongly recommended.
- Diabetes can aggravate eye conditions and lead to the development of early cataracts.
For anyone who is aged 50 or older, a yearly eye examination is recommended to allow early diagnosis of a cataract.
