We thought that my father's cataract problem was induced simply because of his age, he is 65. But it looks like cataract is actually a result of his diabetes. He is a diabetic for 4 years and unfortunately, not a good patient, so he has eye issues now. The only good thing here is that cataract is in the early stage and surgery options are available to him.

It really is a good thing that cataract can be dealt with the surgery. It is a nasty condition and most people think that it comes with the old age, but that is not completely true. It can be a result of some other, ongoing illnesses, just like in your father's case, and even kids can have it, as a hereditary illness.

There are 2 types of surgeries that can be performed in the case of cataract. There is a small incision surgery, which is the most common one, and which utilizes a small probe that emits waves that dissolve the layer covering the eye. The other type includes removing of the hard center of the lens, and then the remaining parts of it. Lens is replaced with artificial one.
