I don't know of any supplements that will treat either cataracts or glaucoma. I do know that an Ophthalmologist, with tens of thousands off hours of training and years of experience will do you more good than the contents of a bottle on a drug store/supermarket shelf.
Created for people with ongoing healthcare needs but benefits everyone.

there are no OTC supplements to treat or prevent cataracts or glaucoma, see an ophthalmologist
