    The body is equipped with several antioxidant systems, however with age or toxic exposures these antioxidants can become reduced or depleted. In this Evidence Based update we discuss oxidative stress, the role of antioxidants in lenticular health, a few of the commercially available ocular antioxidant preparations, as well as findings of a recent study examining the anti-cataract potential of the Seabuckthorn plant.
