Although, patients with chronic diseases are at slightly higher risk for any kind of operations, but now a days with the use of latest machines for cataract surgery the chances of getting complications is very less. As, she is having diabetes, she should get her retina examined (to see any diabetic changes) and takes precautions accordingly. Also she needs her sugar to be under good control before, during and after the operation, to ensure early and good recovery.
