Diabetes is a disease that occurs when an organ called the
pancreas does not secret enough insulin. Insulin is the
hormone that regulated the blood sugar (Glucose) level.
Diabetes most commonly occurs in adults, although it can
affect children as well.
Both cataracts and glaucoma are associated with diabetes.
The main area to be affected in the eye is the retina. This is
called diabetic retinopathy. It most commonly occurs in
individuals who have had diabetes for more than 20 years.
