FAQ on Ayurvedic Treatment for Cataract
- I am 61 years old. There was gradual decrease in vision. I went for a check up. They told that there is cataract and suggested cataract surgery. I went for a second opinion. He told me that it is better to avoid surgery because your nerves are weak and even after a surgery, you wouldn’t get desired result. Whys is it so? Are there methods to strengthen the nerves?
- Ans:- There are many pathological conditions where the nervous layer-Retina- is affected. E.g.:- Macular degeneration, Retinopathy etc. There are methods to strengthen the retina. After that, you can go for a Cataract surgery.
