By Paul Fassa(NaturalNews) Cataracts are common occurrences among aging humans and often their pets. They can occur among younger humans also. The symptoms are cloudy vision, extreme glare sensitivity, with a sense of trying to see in heavy fog under certain lighting conditions. This occurs after proteins interlock to form a glaze over the eye lens.The accepted medical advice is surgical intervention, which usually does the trick if you have insurance or can afford up to $5,000 per eye for all the expenses involved. The surgical procedure is an outpatient operation that can be done under mild "twilight" sedation, if you can hold your eyes still.If that's a problem, you'll need to go under complete anesthesia and sign a waiver explaining there is a slight chance of waking up dead. It appears that fluouroquinolones are appearing in some anesthetic drugs. There have been serious neurological disorders from fluoroquinolones reported.After the cataract covered lens is removed, a synthetic lens is implanted. Usually both eyes are affected, but only one eye is done at a time, just in case. The improvement is not always 100% or permanent. It's possible for a protein coating to cover the synthetic lens later.If diagnosed with cataracts, could there be a way get around this scenario? Cataracts do develop slowly. If you can still manage, you may want to take a few weeks and experiment with some alternative treatments at home before surgery.
