Hello, folks. My father has cataract, but it seems that he also has diabetic retinopathy. I would like to know something more about this combination. Is it possible to have both? I would appreciate if anyone could tell me something more. I would really be grateful for that. Thank you in advance.

Hi, there. Diabetic retinopathy is a common complication for diabetics. The disease affects capillaries in retina. As a result, there is a certain range of vision impairment. This condition appears after 20 years of diabetes. Cataract is also common for older people. Perhaps, that is why it appeared with your father. Cataract can be a result of aging, but diabetes as well. I hope everything will be all right. Bye!
