The key to the recovery of visual acuity after cataract surgery in diabetic patients is to see whether the patient has diabetic retinopathy and the severity of the disease. If the preoperative patient had a retinal hemorrhage, exudation, even had proliferative retinopathy, vitreous body hemorrhage or retinal detachment, at this time, even if the cataract surgery was successful, postoperative visual acuity recovery is not ideal. In addition, due to long-term metabolic disorders in patients with diabetes, the body's resistance to reduce, the recovery period is long, which is also the cause of poor vision after cataract surgery.
To sum up, whether or not the visual acuity can be restored or improved depends on the fundus function and the control of diabetes mellitus. Some patients with postoperative visual acuity recovered well, but the control of diabetes is not good, but due to the aggravation of ocular fundus complications and vision damage. Therefore, patients with diabetic cataract surgery still need to strictly control blood sugar, regular examination of fundus, in order to maintain the vision has been obtained.
