June is Cataract Awareness Month

Symptoms of Cataracts

  • Do you have decreased night vision or see halos around lights?
  • Do colours appear dull or muted?
  • Are your glasses no longer working?
  • Does sunlight or other light seem overly bright or glaring?                               1 IMG 3131

Prevention

At this time, no one knows how to prevent cataracts. You can protect your eyes by wearing sunglasses that protect from UV rays and by seeking a diet rich in antioxidants. While these activities will not prevent cataracts, they can slow their growth.

Foods Rich in antioxidants include:

  • Small red beans
  • Blueberries
  • Pecans
  • Red berries like cranberries, strawberries and raspberries
  • Prunes
  • Apples - Red delicious, Granny Smith and Gala
  • Artichokes
  • Dark green veggies like kale and broccoli
