Can bitter kola cure cataracts eye problem?
Since the research that bitter leaf can cure glaucoma by reducing intraocular pressure, many health quacks have gone to town telling people that eating bitter kola every morning and using bitter kola eye drop can also cure cataracts. This is however, not true; bitter kola cannot cure cataracts and neither can it relief the symptoms of cataracts. Bitter kola cannot cure all eye problems or diseases. Bitter kola is not the remedy for cataracts.
What is now the cure for cataracts?
Surgery is the surest way of removing a cataract not with herbs like bitter kola…
A cataract is a cloudy area in the lens of your eye. If your vision becomes blurry as evening approaches it could be a sign of cataract. But the good news is that surgery can get rid of cataracts. Cataract surgery is safe and corrects vision problems caused by cataracts.
Cataract surgery is performed by an eye doctor (ophthalmologist) on an outpatient (or in-patient)basis, which means you don’t have to stay in the hospital after the surgery.Cataract surgery is very common and is generally a safe procedure.
During cataract surgery, the clouded lens is removed, and a clear artificial lens is usually implanted. In some cases, however, a cataract may be removed without implanting an artificial lens.
Surgical methods used to remove cataracts include:
1. Using an ultrasound probe to break up the lens for removal. During a procedure called phacoemulsification, your surgeon makes a tiny incision in the front of your eye (cornea) and inserts a needle-thin probe into the lens substance where the cataract has formed.
Your eye surgeon then uses the probe, which transmits ultrasound waves, to break up (emulsify) the cataract and suction out the fragments. The very back of your lens (the lens capsule) is left intact to serve as a place for the artificial lens to rest. Stitches may be used to close the tiny incision in your cornea at the completion of the procedure.
3. Making an incision in the eye and removing the lens in one piece. A less frequently used procedure called extracapsular cataract extraction requires a larger incision than that used for phacoemulsification. Through this larger incision your surgeon uses surgical tools to remove the front capsule of the lens and the cloudy lens comprising the cataract. The very back capsule of your lens is left in place to serve as a place for the artificial lens to rest.
This procedure may be performed if you have certain eye complications. With the larger incision, stitches are required.
If you want your cataracts removed, you need to go for surgery. Bitter kola eye drops will not help you.
