Cataract with diabetes
Doctor Answers (2) on Cataract with diabetes
1. Cataract surgery is not recommended in high sugar level as there is increased risk of infection....though with modern surgical techniques and good antibiotic the risk is very less but even then it's not advisable to take avoidable risk...
2. Recommendations by aravind eye institute are ...fasting sugar less than 150mg/dl
3. Cataract is not an emergency..I would recommend you to consult local diabetiologist....and get sugar level under control...before surgery
