•   Antioxidants—vitamin A (beta-carotene), C, E, and selenium - help prevent cataracts. Take 10,000 IU beta-carotene, 3,000 milligrams vitamin C in divided doses, 400 IU vitamin E, and 400 micrograms of selenium daily.

•   Bilberry contains bioflavonoids, which aid in the removal of chemicals from the retina of the eye. During World War II, Royal Air Force pilots snacked on bilberry jam sandwiches before flying night missions to sharpen their night vision. In one human study, bilberry extract plus vitamin E stopped progression of cataract formation in forty-eight out of fifty patients with age-related cataracts. Take 40 to 80 milligrams extract three times daily.
