Biotechnology is a relatively young interdisciplinary discipline of science. Thanks to her techniques, we can currently do a lot of research. Biotechnologists in cooperation with other scientists are trying to develop new standards that would become the future of treatment for many diseases, including cataracts. Today, cataracts are increasingly recognized as a civilization disease of the eyes. Unfortunately, if left untreated, it can lead to complete blindness. The etiology of this disease is complex and not fully understood. At present, its foundations are being sought to be able to diagnose her faster and to introduce appropriate treatment early. Literature data currently indicate that it can arise as a result of: age- related changes, genetic (congenital) conditions, inflammation, metabolic disorders, the effects of certain drugs, and complications of eye diseases. From the latest reports we learn that antioxidation can have positive effects when dissolving the protein directly affecting the formation of cataracts. Biotechnology has amazing opportunities to conduct research that can help bring closer the etiology of cataracts and start to treat the disease faster by which so many people in the world lose sight.
