Cataract is the opacification (light impenetrability) of the lens. In this condition, the lens of the eyes interferes with the eye vision. Since light cannot enter the opaque lens, therefore the eyes fail to give the representation of the objects seen.
The lens becomes opaque and hard. The unctuousness (soapiness and softness) of the lens gets lost. As a result, the rays of light from the objects fail to penetrate the lens. In the long run, the retinas of the eyes are also rendered useless; and the retina cannot accept the rays of lights coming from the objects. The perception of vision becomes impaired.
PARTIAL IMPAIRMENT OF VISION
At the initial stages, the vision may be blurred or disrupted. This condition is termed as ‘Partial impairment of vision’. The objects may appear as dull images.
CHECK CONSTIPATION TO MAINTAIN HEALTHY VISION

Preventive Means: The patient should regularly consume Triphala water and Maha Triphala Ghritta.
In Ayurvedic terminology, cataract is termed Linga Nasha or Timira.
According to Ayurvedic principles, such a condition develops due to the aggravation of Vayu.
Vayu dries up things. Here, aggravation of Vayu dries up the liquid that makes the lens and the retina supple.
Hence, Ayurvedic treatments first correct the Vayu composition. Pure Ghrita or ghee (prepared only form cow’s milk) is one of the most effective Ayurvedic natural medications to cure all forms of eye ailments.
