So total of 100 samples. 4) Study duration: 2 years from Jan 2021 to December 2022. Results: The mean preoperative best corrected visual acuity in the diabetic group was 0.99?0.19 and in non - diabetic group was 0.96?0.21. The mean post - operative best corrected visual acuity in log MAR units in the diabetic group was 0.27?0.14 and in the non - diabetic group was 0.25?0.11. The difference in pre and post op visual outcome was statistically significant (p=0.001).
