Research appearing in the Archives of Opthamalogy (January 2008, Volume 126, Issue 1, Pages 102-109) looked at the dietary habits of over 35,000 women for a period of more than ten years.

A high intake of the carotenoids was associated with an 18% reduction in cataracts. A high intake of vitamin E. was associated with a 14% reduction in cataracts.
