Hi b8251213,
Having new lenses makes the world of difference. One that suffers from cataracts has such gradual changes that it's not realized until the replacement procedure is completed. In my opininion a general Multivitamin which usually contains all the essential elements would be good for anyones health in general, and should be considered adequate.

Dear Rntdj:

Thank you very much for the information will look into a vitamin and will also talk to my eye doctor when I go in for new glasses, yes you can have cataract surgery and still need glasses.

By the way I am the same person (b8251213) that was talking to you about Periphery Neuropathy and the future test for heavy metal. Results are in the only problem is this site disabled the personal message section and I haven't been able to contact you to give you a update. Sorry about that!
