Cataract is currently the leading cause of blindness in the world [1-3]. Contributing risk factors for the development of cataract include older age, sunlight exposure, certain types of chronic health diseases, a secondary (complicated) cataract developing as a result of other primary ocular diseases, secondary to the medication (e.g., systemic corticosteroids), ocular trauma, radiation, smoking, alcohol use, obesity, nutritional deficiency, family history, and previous eye surgery [1,2].
