50% of Americans have Cataracts. But what in the world is a “Cataract?”
Did you know over 50% of Americans over 75 have Cataracts? (1) To put this in perspective, in 2015, surgeons performed 3.6 million cataract surgeries in the United States (2) Worldwide numbers from 2015 reached 20 million Cataract surgeries. In 2016, the number of worldwide Cataract surgeries spiked to 23 million procedures! (3)
What is causing this increase in Cataract formation?
To answer this question, I did the research to understand the medical definition of Cataracts and how a natural compound Lanosterol could make a difference in Cataract treatment and prevention.
What is a Cataract and what is causing these numbers?
We need to begin by clarifying what is a Cataract. I spent hours researching the definition of Cataracts so you can have a clear understanding of the topic.
Let’s begin by defining a Cataract.
Cataracts are buildups of protein on the lens of the eye. (4)
Cataracts are not a disease, but they are a serious eye problem. If left untreated, Cataracts can lead to vision loss or even blindness in extreme situations. (5)
Remember; Cataracts are a vision problem, not an eye disease. Cataracts cause vision to become blurred or opaque. An example of the eye problem is best described in the image below:
What are the Causes of Cataracts?
The cause of Cataracts is not scientifically established, but plausible causes include:
Aging– It has been observed that cataracts are most commonly observed in the elderly, between 70 to 80 years old to be exact. (6) As we grow older, protein deposits build up around the lens of the eye which can lead to Cataract formation. Statistics are now showing an increase in Cataract formation beginning in adults age 50. (7)
Alcohol Consumption– My research indicated that some scientists in the eye-health community believe free radicals could damage the cells of the eye and lead to Cataracts. (8) This idea is in its infancy, but it makes sense. Ethanol is a free radical that can cause damage to cells. (9) There is a high toxicological risk in over consuming Alcohol.
Smoking– Nicotine promotes free radicals that can also damage cells. (10) I want to say E-Cigarettes could serve as a possible solution, but the research says otherwise. E-Cigarettes are made with aerosols which are sources are “highly reactive” sources of oxidized free radicals. (11)
Free Radical Damage– Toxic sources found in Smoking and Alcohol products and an increasingly toxic environment pose a serious risk to cell health. I am guilty of neglecting the role of a toxic environment in my health. We need to prioritize detoxification to protect our cells from free radical damage.
Poor Diet– Excess of refined sugar, trans-fat and GMO foods could contribute to toxicity in the body. From the research I compiled on the relationship between diet and eye-health, we need to reduce all sources of processed foods for the betterment of our health.
Diabetes– Diabetics do not have control of their sugar levels. 20% of people who get Cataract surgery have Diabetes. (12)
Ultra Violet Sunlight– Exposure to UV rays could cause vision problems. New studies are showing the relationship between oxidative stress and cataract formation. (13) I would recommend investing in high quality sun glasses to protect your eyes from oxidative stress caused by Ultra Violet Sunlight. I invested in a pair of high quality, polarized sun glasses because, in the end, I only have one pair of eyes that I want to keep healthy.
Summary- The exact cause of Cataracts is unknown, however the most likely cause is aging and free radical damage to cells.
Symptoms of Cataracts
Now that we have a general idea of the causes of Cataracts, I researched the symptoms of Cataracts to get a better understanding of this exceedingly common eye health problem. Typical symptoms of Cataracts include:
- Opaque/blurry/dull vision (14) – “Foggy Vision”
- Difficulty Seeing at Night
- Gradual Vision Loss if left untreated
- Sensitivity to sunlight and bright lights
- Poor Spatial Vision
- Difficulty focusing on objects
Summary- Cataracts cause a “foggy vision” experience.
Untreated Cataracts could lead to wor se vision and even vision loss. (15) Cataracts are not a disease, but they will not heal on their own. Cataracts do put you at a risk of blindness, so understanding how to reduce the risk factors of Cataracts is important.
My research has lead me to a natural solution called Lanosterol. I have done the research to explain exactly how and why Lanosterol could be a natural treatment to prevent and solve your Cataract problem.
Summary- Cataracts need to be treated as they will not heal on their own.
Lanosterol Eye Drops: A Natural Alternative to Surgery?
Nature is powerful, would you agree? My research lead me to understand how this natural compound could be a game-changer in the treatment of Cataract formation.
There are two preventative measures: Cataract Surgery and Eye Drops containing Lanosterol. Lanosterol eye drops for congenital cataracts treatment is one of the most exciting recent discoveries in medicine.
But what exactly is Lanosterol?
Lanosterol is a natural chemical produced in the body. (16) The body catalyzes the production of steroids through a process called “Lanosterol synthase”. Fungal bodies also naturally produce lanosterol.
A study conducted at the UC San Diego discovered Lanosterol as a primary protein involved in the genetic coding of Cataracts in humans. (17)
Summary- Lanosterol is a natural solution which could help reduce Cataracts.
The Process of Lanosterol Synthesis
Lanosterol synthesis works to dissolve cataracts by removing protein build up in the lens of the eye.
Some scientists even suggest that Lanosterol deficiency causes cataracts to develop through protein aggregation. (18)
Because Lanosterol is naturally produced by the body, it is safe to use as a treatment for your cataracts.
Summary- The body naturally produces Lanosterol.
In a study, the doctors applied Lanosterol eye drops to human lens cells over a period of a few months. (19)
The clinical trials observed Lanosterol as naturally reducing the size of Cataracts.
Researchers noted that if the treatment was stopped, the cataracts would probably continue to develop.
Summary- Research shows that Lanosterol could play a role in reducing Cataract formation.
Benefits of Lanosterol
- Lanosterol can promote size reduction in Cataracts.
- Could reduce the need for a surgical procedure.
- Natural Alternative
- Can be used to help developing countries
Cataracts can be effectively treated with a surgical procedure, but it can be quite expensive and require highly trained surgeons.
This is a serious issue in many developing countries, especially when you consider the reality that the world’s population is aging.
Numerous countries have cases of patients losing their vision because the medical infrastructure cannot support surgical procedures.
This is why Lanosterol cataract drops are such an exciting potential for the treatment of congenital cataracts. With Lanosterol drops, treating these patients will become much simpler–and less expensive!
Summary- The benefits of Lanosterol could serve developing countries.
Cataracts in Pets
Cataracts not only affect humans, but also our pets.
In fact, many individuals first hear about the condition because they notice a milky filter over their pet’s pupils.
Dogs (outside dogs in particular) are susceptible to cataract formation and can face early onset blindness because of the condition.
Lanosterol has already been proven by a few studies to be effective in the treatment of cataracts for animals. (20)
Lanomax eye drops for dogs can assist with this condition and reduce the development of the eye problem.
Summary- Lanosterol could also reduce the size of Cataracts in animals.
Lanosterol treatment is a natural solution for your cataracts and is both affordable and accessible.
The cost of cataracts surgery can be between $3500-5000.
Lanosterol drops offered on our website only cost $99 per bottle.
We offer the highest quality drops that include patented ThruDelivery technology. ThruDelivery Technology improves the ability of Lanosterol to penetrate the areas of your lens where protein deposits are located.
The scientific community is demonstrating that Lanosterol could dissolve the protein build-ups that cause the progression of cataracts.
This could mean massive shifts in the way cataracts are treated around the world–and for pets!
If you’re looking for an affordable and accessible way to slow down the progression of your cataracts, consider Lanosterol eye drops.
