Will I develop a cataract if I have diabetes?

Cataracts that develop as a result of diabetes are a different type of cataract to cataracts caused by aging.

Not everyone who is diabetic will develop cataracts, however diabetes increases the risk of developing cataracts by 60%.

People with diabetes are more likely to develop cataracts at a younger age and may suffer complications after cataract operations. Diabetic cataracts are removed during cataract removal surgery as with age related or congenital cataracts.
