Cataracts & EDTA.

I saw a study that indicated that EDTA might help cure cataracts. This is my experience.

I had an appointment with an eye doctor in November 2019. He indicated I was starting to develop cataracts. I had heard somewhere that EDTA might be a cure. So, I did some investigation on making eye drops using EDTA. I found out that EDTA needed a pH of 8 in order to dissolve. I thought of creating my own pH solution to dissolve the EDTA but decided to check out eye drops to see if any of them had a pH of 8.

I found that 'Systane Ultra' eye drops had a pH of 8. The 'Systane Ultra' dropper bottle was 10 ml. I opened one 600 mg gel capsule of EDTA and dumped the total contents of the capsule into the 10 ml dropper bottle of 'Systane Ultra' eye drops. The EDTA completely dissolved in it with no problem.

So, I used these drops every day and sometimes several times a day. My next appointment was supposed to be in November 2020 but because of covid it was rescheduled to April 20,2021.

The doctor reexamined my eye and found no improvement in the cataract. So, I just wanted to report this to save other people the trouble of doing this experiment again. EDTA for cataracts is also mentioned in the following link:

For what it's worth.
