Hello. Thanks for the question.

Cloudy eyes can be due to one of a few things. It can be cataracts. These can be secondary to diabetes or age related. It could also be nuclear sclerosis. This does not affect the vision, but it causes cloudiness. It's basically scarring to the lens.

It could also be uveitis or cloudiness in the anterior chamber between the cornea and pupil. This can be due to an inflammatory condition, pain, infection or bleeding in the anterior chamber.

You really need to get a good exam with good lighting and magnification to determine what is causing the cloudy look. From there, certain drops can be prescribed to help clear it up. It's not something that you can treat with over the counter drops, I'm afraid.

I hope this helps, let me know if you have any other questions.

Ok, I didn't know you already had him diagnosed.

There are lots of drops out there that claim they dissolve cataracts. Unfortunately, they just don't work. If they did, that would be great. We wouldn't need phagoemulsification surgery anymore. The truth is, they don't work and the only way to clear the eyes is with the surgery to break up the cataracts and remove them.

Here's a nice write up on cataracts and the surgery:

There appears to be a problem with the site. I did not intend to respond to this question and yet one of my answers was posted to it (which I've deleted); my apologies for any confusion. Deb
