high myopia cataracts are that patients feel fog, no itch or pain, their near and far vision can not be corrected, and they can’t see clearly in the sun. They must find appropriate light to see clearly. This disease often occurs in high myopia with poor nutrition since childhood, often after the age of 40, affecting their work earlier.

therefore, if you find yourself in high myopia caused by malnutrition in adolescence, it can be regarded as a risk signal of cataract in the middle-aged and elderly!

overweight is prone to cataract!

Chicago researchers followed 17700 people aged 40-84 for 6 years, of which 370 suffered from cataract. It was found that obese and overweight men were more than twice as likely to have cataracts as thin men. In this study, the researchers attributed 34% of cataract to overweight, 21% attributed to diabetes, 12% attributable to smoking, and 4% attributable to hypertension.
