Diabetes is a lifelong condition that causes the blood sugar levels in our body to become too high. Sugar levels in our body are controlled by a chemical called insulin, which is made by the pancreas. In some people, the pancreas does not work properly and this causes the sugar levels to rise. The raised sugar levels can affect the body in many ways and may cause damage to our eyes.
Cataract is a common condition that causes the lens inside our eye to become cloudy.
The lens is a clear disc that sits in the front section of our eye and helps us see clearly. As this lens becomes cloudy over time, it can cause problems with your vision.
