CataractCataract Treatment in Ayurveda

A cataract is an eye disease in which the clear lens of the eye becomes cloudy causing decrease in vision and this ailment primarily develops in eldelry patients. It is a common disease and most cataracts are a result of the aging process as explained above as well so aged patients must be aware of all its signs and symptoms. In the development of age-related cataract, the power of the lens may be increased, causing near-sightedness (myopia) and patients are unable to perform daily activites with ease. Cataracts typically progress slowly to cause vision loss and are potentially blinding if untreated so a medical treatment is very much vital always. It usually affects both eyes but one of the eyes is always affected earlier than the other and treatment as well is carried on eyes as such. You are welcome to contact Nakra Ayurveda Hospitals and Herbals Pvt Ltd to avail our Free Online Ayurveda Consultation for cataract.
