No, the only proven successful treatment for cataracts is surgery. At least that's what conventional medicine says. Eye drops or other means can improve the lens opacity according to current scientific knowledge, neither slow their progression.
Cataract cataracts are often attributed to a slowing or disruption of the metabolism of the lens. Since this may be an expression of a disturbed metabolism in the body, it seems obvious to consider metabolism-promoting therapy as a useful supplementary measure. This includes acupuncture.
