None effective: Removing cataracts remains a surgical treatment. Cataracts can vary from mild to severe. Your eye doctor can determine if they are at a point where they need to be removed. Having an eye exam will be necessary to determine the best course of action. Good luck and be well.

No: Cataract surgery is the only way to remove cataracts from the eyes. There are not any medications or drops that will make the cataract go away.
