Why do Diabetic Patients have a high chance of getting Cataract Eyes?

Everywhere Diabetes. One-third of the world’s population is suffering from Diabetes. There is still a belief that “Diabetes can be cured permanently.”

Hopefully, many scientists are working and relating many facts to end up before it mutates into a genetic disease.

The high blood sugar level is the core reason for the segregation of Diabetes. You are the reason for your poor health.

Your food pattern and food culture alter the good basic functioning of your healthy body. Still, now, Diabetes can only be controlled.

Your increased blood sugar level is due to poor and irregular energy breakdown that is generally done from the energy source you consume.

Your mental and physical health contribute to the piling up of blood glucose levels.

Diabetes – the accelerator of Cataract

Have you ever thought, “diabetes can accelerate Eye Cataracts?” High blood sugar limits not only your health but also your eye health

 You still get confused about connecting the relation between diabetes and the eyes. Your eye health is affected due to glucose. High glucose in your blood starts to deteriorate the blood vessels, and new vessels are reborn.

 When you are affected by high blood sugar for the long term, there is a high chance for you to get infected by Diabetic Retinopathy. 

Is Diabetic Retinopathy a newfound eye illness?

Diabetic Retinopathy is not a newer eye illness. This disease is most commonly observed in Diabetic Patients. 

 Most people know that they are infected by this eye illness much later after the early stage of infection. The fact is, “most people are unaware of this kind of eye infection.” 

 Diabetic patients feel no pain until the illness develops a serious infection. The Retina in your eyes passes a signal to the brain. 

 If the Retina is infected, you find it very hard to process the information. 

Does Cataract have any relation to Diabetes?

You may tell me that Cataracts are commonly seen in older people, and the possibility of cataracts being mainly due to Diabetes is unacceptable. 

 You are partially right. To make you aware, Diabetes shares its contribution to cataracts. The continuous high blood sugar level destroys the blood vessels in the optic nerve. Cloudy Eyes are easy to observe with the naked eye. 

 But some other eye symptoms are practically impossible to observe without optometry devices. 

 The severity of Diabetes in the eyes generally leads to Cataracts and Glaucoma.

Why do I not feel any eye pain?

Eye Diabetes does not develop any eye pain. Due to this, many fail to test their eyes. Your blood vessels are affected alone, so you can’t feel any pain. 

 Retinal Detachment is the result of diabetic retinopathy. Generally, people suffering from these illnesses do not feel any pain. EYE EXAMINATION is the only choice for you to find the degree of infection. 

 People having cataracts and glaucoma do not deal with any eye pain.

What happens when you ignore it?

Ignorance of eye illnesses is the biggest crime. You are stealing your eye health. 

 If you take less eye care, you are at an excellent leap for what you will lose in the near future. Most diabetic patients significantly ignore undergoing eye examinations. When diabetic retinopathy is ignored and unaddressed at the right time, the illnesses start to deteriorate at a greater speed. 

 Thus you are approaching your vision loss. Depending on the degree of infection, temporary or permanent vision loss is decided. 

 The more time you delay, the more chance of having vision loss. 

What makes Diabetic Patients very much prone to Cataracts?

These are the main reasons that make the diabetic patient incur cataracts at the earliest, 

  • High Blood Sugar
  • High Cholesterol
  • High Blood Pressure 
  • Smokers

 High Blood Sugar plus Smoking is the deadliest combination ever. Yes! But not in a good manner. These combinations speed up the infection, and smoking decreases eye health. 

 It is highly recommended to undergo a periodic eye examination to diagnose diabetic retinopathy and save your eyes from Cataracts.

What are the best ways of getting rid of Cataracts?

Control your blood sugar level at the optimum level advised by your doctor

 Make sure you take a periodic blood sugar test to know about the rise and fall of sugar levels.

 If you experience any of the mentioned symptoms, make no delay in consulting your ophthalmologists. 

 Cultivate the practice of undergoing eye examinations periodically, which is compulsory if you are a diabetic patient. 

 Avoid smoking to restrict the growth of cataracts.
