Cataract Diabetes

Cataract in diabetic patients is a major cause of blindness in developed and developing countries. The pathogenesis of diabetic cataract development is still not fully understood because people with diabetes mellitus are statistically face a 60% greater risk of developing cataracts. Diabetic patients have a higher risk of complications after phacoemulsification cataract surgery compared to nondiabetics. In addition, research has shown that people with type 2 diabetes who lower their HbA1c level by just 1% can reduce their risk of cataracts by 19%.
