Cataract is an opacity that develops in the crystalline lens of the eye or in its
envelope. The most effective and common treatment thought is surgical
removal of the cloudy lens. This is because it never occurred to the surgeons
that cataract can be cured with medicines.

James Compton Burnett was born on July 10, 1840 and died April 2, 1901.
He attended medical school in Vienna, Austria in 1865.
In 1876, he took his MD degree. He is a converted homeopath. When advised
not to go into homeopathy Burnett replied that he could not buy worldly honor at
the cost of his conscience.
Burnett was one of the first to speak about illness triggered by vaccines. This is
discussed in his book, Vaccinosis, published in 1884. He introduced many
nosodes including Baccillinum. Being a prodigious writer he published over
twenty books in his lifetime. His book, Fifty Reasons for Being a Homoeopath
(1888), is of particular note for beginners.
