Abstract

Aim of the study is to observe the progression of diabetic retinopathy in patients after cataract extraction and placement of intraocular lens implantation. Diabetes affects both the anterior as well as the posterior segment of the eyes. In this study we observed the progression of the diabetic retinopathy following uncomplicated cataract surgery with intraocular lens implantation over a one year period and found that the maximum progression was seen at the end of 1 year in patients of age group 56-65 with no gender predilection. Cataract surgery in diabetic patients can be performed with an acceptable risk of complications and worsening of diabetic retinopathy seems to be correlated not with the cataract surgery but with the natural course of diabetic vascular disease.

Keywords: Cataract, Diabetic retinopathy, Intraocular lens implantation, Maculopathy, Progression.
