Do not eat dairy products, saturated fat, cooked or processed fat or oil. These substances can promote the formation of free radicals and damage the lens. Therefore, only low-temperature pressed vegetable oil should be eaten. 3. No smoking. The free radicals produced by smoking will increase the content of oxidants in the body, which is very easy to cause cataract. 4. Eat more carrots, potatoes, green leafy vegetables and animal liver to get enough vitamin A. 5. Eat more beans, Cereals, yeast fermented products, animal viscera and lean meat to obtain enough B vitamins. 6. Eat more fish, shrimp, milk and eggs to supplement vitamin E and zinc. 7.

Ensure the intake of vitamin C. Whether the intake of vitamin C in the diet is sufficient can also affect the transparency of crystals. If vitamin C is insufficient, it can reduce the activity of soluble protein glutathione and reduce the transparency, which is also one of the main causes of senile cataract.

Deep sea fish oil: regulate blood lipids and maintain retinal health. Spirulina: rich in vitamin C β- Carotene and protein. Lowering blood sugar is especially suitable for treating diabetic cataracts. B vitamins: the deficiency of B2 and pantothenic acid is directly related to the occurrence of cataract. Experiments have shown that fish and geese can develop cataracts without B2 and pantothenic acid. B6 plays an important role in improving diabetic cataract. Squalene: improve cell hypoxia, promote blood oxygen transport and cell oxygen utilization. Protein powder protein helps new cells grow and repair damaged cells. Multivitamins: provide essential nutrients to meet daily physical needs.
