In the early stages, diabetic related eye conditions often have few symptoms, which makes them especially dangerous.
This can only occur in the presence of diabetic retinopathy, and is swelling in the macular area of the retina caused by an increase in eye fluid. This leads to vision becoming blurred.
It is caused by damage to light-sensitive tissue at the back of the retina.
Blood sugar control and lifestyle changes such as stopping smoking can reduce the chances of developing diabetic retinopathy.
People with diabetes have a 5% chance of developing glaucoma, in contrast to a 2% risk for non-diabetics.
Diabetes can raise blood pressure, and high blood pressure is a risk factor for glaucoma.
Diabetics are 2 – 5 times more likely to suffer from cataracts than the general population.
Before surgery you will have to get a list of general investigations done, which would give us an idea on your general body health status at the time of surgery. Your systemic problems like hypertension or diabetes have to be under check prior and after the surgery.
After surgery, you need to be able to follow your discharge summary and apply drops to the operated eye as advised. Also, have to avoid dust, water and crowded places for atleast 1-2 Weeks after surgery.
For further questions on the surgery, precautions and other topics please feel free to discuss with your doctor.
