We invite all eye doctors to make a New Year Resolution for 2017! Don't be shy. Break with tradition, and for the first time in the last 100 years, actually TRY to cure cataract without surgery, and spare the human eye lens from the knife or laser. Go on, be daring, do what a doctor's supposed to do, and TRY. Make a resolution: "This year, I'm gonna TRY to cure human cataract without resorting to surgery, save the lens, and save the human eye in all its integrity! To hell with the $14 billion that we're making from surgery - I don't care any more, I'm gonna do the right thing, and put patients first!" The technology is there. Biologists, chemists and biochemists have, since 1954, come up with a full range of various eye drops that have been found, in animal studies and/or from anecdotal reports, to restore clarity to cataractous lenses. If you TRY to save people's natural lens with these tools, and you fail despite your best efforts, no-one in this world can ever blame you. We certainly won't. But if you don't TRY, that's a whole different story. The world will never know what might have been possible. After all, Hippocrates said: "First, do no harm". He didn't say: "Do nothing, so patients are forced to submit to surgery". Did he.
