No: I agree a second opinion is always good if you have any concerns. Diabetes is associated with the early development of a specific type of cataract, so it is not unusual. More importantly, even in a perfect cataract surgery case, diabetes inside the eye may worsen. So, when the cataract is ready, it is preferable to perform the surgery earlier, when diabetes in the eye is minimal. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Cana female grow at 15 years old? (bone age 15), current height is 150.7cm. Mum's height is 162 and dad's height is 169, period came at 12 years old.
One answer: Age does play a role in determining target range for iop to a degree. If the likelihood of too high a target iop is to cause noticeable visual dysfunction for an aging adult, the the target should be set lower. As a person's life journey is near the end, remaining quality of life is an essential factor to consider.

Will "close work" (e.g., computer at work, reading, etc) be impactful to peripheral lattice retinal degeneration? Or only for myopia progression?
Not likely: There are some animal studies that suggest that intense near work in children could enhance myopia. I don't believe that mechanism is still at play by age 41. There should be no impact on lattice degeneration from computer work or reading. Lattice degeneration per se does not progress. What changes in the eye is the state of the vitreous gel and its relationship to the lattice. ...Read more
