Abstract

Background: Type 2 diabetes is the most common type of diabetes, accounting for around 90% of all diabetes cases. An investigation of the role of contrast sensitivity in diabetes, as well as its correlation with Hb1Ac, is being conducted in this research.

Purpose: The fundamental purpose of the study was to assess contrast sensitivity in type 2 diabetes was the goal of this investigation.

Methodology: The related research was done at treetops eye and Medical Centre Lahore. A self-designed Performa was used to gather the data. Visual acuity was taken by the Snellen chart. After recording visual acuity performed refraction. After performing refraction then check contrast sensitivity on the Pelli Robson chart. Afterward, the findings were recorded on the Performa. entering and analyzing the data, the IBM Spss version was used.

Results: There was a relationship between contrast sensitivity and hb1ac value in type 2 diabetes. People with normal contrast sensitivity in the right eye with a percentage of 46% are higher than both less than severe with 25% and more than moderate at 29.0% and in the left eye 52% are higher than both less than moderate with 22% and more than severe with 26%.

Conclusion: Thus, from the present study, it is concluded that Type 2 diabetes and contrast sensitivity are shown to be closely linked in this research.
