In brief: Unfortunately not

N-acetylcarnosine (NAC) in small studies showed improve vision in cataract patients.
However, it has not been studied in double blind, randomized, prospective way & studies were paid for by company who has vested interest. It is not FDA approved. Likely sun protection & eating a diet rich in antioxidants is just as good; so there is still not enough proof. More info at: eyedoc2020@blogspot.com

In brief: You can't

Cataract surgery is the only way to remove cataracts.
You can prevent rapid progression by wearing sunglasses and hats to avoid ultraviolet light. If you are a smoker, one more reason to quit!
