I LOVE your holistic/natural approach and your approach is the most logical I have read as I have been searching the internet for advice. A surgery can NEVER be undone. I had radial keratotomy in one eye about 1986 which was over-corrected, making my astigmatism in that eye actually worse than prior to that procedure. Currently, I have early cataracts in both eyes as well as difficulty at nights with the lights of oncoming cars. Is there any help for the astigmatism with cataracts in the one eye as well as the eye that had the radial keratotomy? Do you recommend any eye exercises for the astigmatism?
To conclude, steroids should be used wisely and under the supervision of your doctor. Regular eye check-ups are required to rule out high eye pressures. Although cataracts can develop, they aren’t harmful to the eye’s health. Steroid induced cataract causes symptoms like glare and photophobia in early stages and causes a significant degree of vision loss in advanced stages. These drug-induced steroid cataracts are not reversible. Cataract can be successfully treated with a quick painless advanced cataract surgery. For this reason, the concern over cataract formation shouldn’t preclude physicians from using steroids in necessary situations.
