Cataract & Diabetes

My father has diabetes(now reduced to ~140/170) and cataract which is fully developed. We are looking at lens options for the same. Few doctors suggested that Multifocal lens might create problems in future due to diabetes. Is it true that we should go for Monofocal to avoid complexities in future.

We understand your feeling and your concern. We are sorry for what your father had to face. But then you see that totally deoends upon the blood sugar levels of your father. If he is taking his medications regularly and having regular follow ups with the doctor then there is no need to worry whether it is multi focal or mono focal lens. You can proceed with any lens. Amd before the surgery make sure that uis blood sugar keveks are u der control. Thank you
