Dr. Rick :

Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.

Dr. Rick :

No. I am sorry to report that there is no natural healing process, herb, diet, drop or anything else that can reverse, heal or improve cataracts in any way.

Dr. Rick :

The only treatment is surgery. The good news? Cataract surgery is one of the most successful surgical treatments in the world.

Dr. Rick :

Does this make sense to you?

Dr. Rick :

And, now, the obligatory word from our sponsors: :o)
