Hi everyone, I'm new to this app/forum.
Recently I saw my eye doctor for my yearly dilation and check-up. He noticed that the lens in my eyes have changed which he said is the "infantile" stage of developing cataracts.
Now, my a1c has never been over 6.9 since I was diagnosed eight years ago. I've never had any issues or complications prior to this. He mentioned that I should be wearing good quality sunglasses when I'm outside in order to protect against the UV rays.
My question is, does being diabetic make us susceptible to cataracts even with A1C in the recommended range?
If anyone could shed some light on this I'd be grateful :)
