What is diabetes? How does it affect one’s vision? Is there a cure? We ask the specialist

Diabetes is a chronic medical condition which deranges glucose metabolism resulting in increased blood glucose levels. The raised glucose levels in the blood affect almost every part of the body as their predominant effect is on all blood vessels.

Most times there is a combination of occlusion and edema due to diabetes.
