The next several posts will expose just how misinformed some people are about cataracts, and will hopefully change your “views” on cataracts and cataract surgery. We will present one myth, then we will disprove it and replace it with nothing but facts.
Myth #1: Eye drops can delay, dissolve or even prevent cataracts and/or the development of cataracts.
FACT: NO.The FDA hasn’t approved ANY drops to fixing or preventing cataracts. Cataracts are a natural development of the aging process, and are impossible to prevent. Some drops even claim to “dissolve” the cataract. This term is used incorrectly in that there is nothing to “dissolve”, hence misinforming you and potentially further harming your eyes.
