• Does Marijuana Help Cataracts?


    Question:

    Does marijuana help cataracts (a clouding of the eye’s lens)?


    Answer:

    There is currently no evidence to suggest that this is the case. On that note, there is a commonly held thought that marijuana does help glaucoma (a disease that increases pressure in the eye, damaging the optic nerve) by lowering intraocular pressure. However, the dosages and side effects involved to get marginal improvement make it a very poor choice for treating glaucoma.
