Prof Moin said that diabetes is the major cause of eye diseases nowadays. Diabetics should get regular eye check-ups and try to control their diabetes to minimise eye complications, he stressed.

Responding to a question, Prof Moin said that the use of mobile phones, laptops and other modern devices has increased in the last two years due to emergence of

corona situation which is also having a negative impact on the eyes. The use of glasses should also be ensured according to the standard and eye number, Prof Moin added.
