LSU AgCenter scientists have successfully developed a non-invasive method for cataracts treatment by delivering lutein co-crystals directly to the eyes using nanoparticles. Lutein, a natural pigment found in various plants such as corn, spinach, broccoli, and yellow flowers, plays a crucial role in enhancing eye health and fighting against macular degeneration. By embracing this groundbreaking approach, we are opening a more convenient and safer alternative offering for invasive cataract surgery. This revolutionary technique represents the future of cataract treatment.
