How to Prevent Cataract and Glaucoma
Most people suffer from cataract when they are around 70 years old. This is usually caused by aging process. Therefore, cataract is somewhat regarded as a part of aging.
Although cataract is more common in adults, it can also occur in young people, and sometimes, even in a baby's eyes at birth. It is a disease of the eye and we recommend you to consult eye specialists.
When people get old, even the eyes get wrinkles and tears remain along the wrinkles. It is the reason that old people look maudlin or sentimental.
Now, are there any methods or remedies to prevent cataract when we get old? Yes, there are. If you are still below 40 years old, start these techniques on how to prevent developing cataract when you get old. If you do not believe me, you will surely have cataract when you reach 60 years old. LOL. No joke here.
According to the studies done by one of the largest pharmaceutical companies and by the Ministry of Health in Japan, vitamin C intake can prevent or minimize getting eye problems of cataract in old age.
One big pharmaceutical company gathered 3.5 million volunteers for 25 years and they were given dieted food plus vitamin C tablet as a supplement.
Each year, the medical group checked the eyes of 45 to 65 years old. The result was marvelous. After 25 years of conducting research, the company scientists were convinced that vitamin C works remarkably against cataract.
Out of 3.5 million people, only 25 – 30% of them are having a sign of cataract but only 2.5% of them were surgically operated.
Another important information is that the eyes contain antioxidants called lutein. Lutein is the only carotenoid that is included in the retina and lens of the eye, and it is also called as the eye vitamin.
Lutein has a strong anti-oxidation action that protects the eye from the damage of the active oxygen caused by ultraviolet rays. Lutein can be found in the back of the eye where retina is located. When lutein decreases with age and the like, anti-oxidation action becomes weak and active oxygen increases, denaturation of the eye occurs, and vision will be deteriorated. The lutein presence in the eyes will help prevent glaucoma and cataracts.
Lutein is found naturally in foods such as spinach, broccoli, Brussels sprout, lettuce, green peas, kiwi fruit, and marigold.
Some scientists say that overdose of vitamin C is bad for the health. Is it true? Our study indicates that the answer is Yes and No. The effect of it varies greatly from person to person. If you take large amounts of vitamin C, it's preferable to divide the dose probably after each meal.
Another thing you have to bear in mind is self-diagnosis. Because of old age, if you notice that the weakening of your eyesight is caused by cataract, you must consult your ophthalmologist (eye doctor) as soon as possible. Because it might not be cataract at all but glaucoma, a more dangerous eye disease. Many cases of glaucoma can be cured by PYRO-ENERGEN at its early stage, and to prevent recurrence after eye surgical operation, PYRO-ENERGEN is very effective.
If you are below 40 years old, start taking more vitamin C, and we recommend you to wear sunglasses. These ideas might prevent you from getting cataract when you get old. It is the study done by several researchers.
