Can cataracts be prevented?

Because most cataracts are part of the normal ageing process, they cannot be completely prevented. Not smoking, wearing sunglasses to reduce overexposure to the sun (ultraviolet light) and managing conditions that can contribute to the formation of cataracts (such as diabetes) may help to slow the rate at which cataracts form.
