    Cataracts are caused by accumulated protein on the lens of the eye and clouding vision is the main symptom of cataracts. In spite of the fact that cataracts can be removed and cured by surgical operation, they can also be prevented and treated by the consumption of Vitamin C. Also known as ascorbic acid, vitamin C may help to protect the body's cells from oxidative damage caused by free radicals. The Office of Dietary Supplements notes that oxidative stress might contribute to the development of cataracts, and therefore vitamin C might play a role in the treatment of cataracts. But mind you that Vitamin C can have some side effects if not consumed properly. So you have to follow the guidance of the eye doctor to take Vitamin C.
