Abstract

HERBAL DRUGS USED IN TREATMENT OF CATARACT

Sudhir Pandya*, Deepa Prabhakar Pandey and Supriya Rajendra Patil

Abstract

Cataract surgery is the commonest single surgical procedure carried out in the developed world. In the developing world, cataract remains the commonest cause of blindness. In 1990 an estimated 37 million people were blind worldwide—40% of them because of cataract.1 Every year, an extra 1-2 million people go blind. Every five seconds one person in our world goes blind, and a child goes blind every minute. In 75% of these cases the blindness is treatable or preventable. However, 90% of blind people live in the poorest sections of the developing world, and without proper interventions the number of blind people will increase to 75 million by 2020. Various aspects of the surgery for age related cataract have changed substantially in the past five years, and the quality of outcome, plus the improved safety of the modern procedure, has in part driven the increase in numbers of procedures performed.

Keywords: Cataract, Ginger, Oxidative stress, Flavonoids.
