Since the sugar level is very high, surgery should be postponed until the pp sugar level is at least below 200. This will help help with proper wound healing and prevent complications of cataract surgery.
Next Steps
Please schedule online consultation to discuss diabetes and BP medications and the adjustments necessary to improve both for surgery
