Purpose: The aim of this study was to analyse the ocular findings in Diabetics with Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) on haemodialysis and also to assess the causes of visual impairment in these patients.
Materials and Methods: A retrospective, hospital-based case record analysis of 224 case records of diabetics with CKD on haemodialysis over a period of 6 years was done at a tertiary medical college hospital in South India, where 66 case records (33 eyes) sought for an ophthalmic consultation were studied.
Result: In our study, male: female ratio of diabetics with CKD on haemodialysis was found to be 3:2 with a mean age of 49.33 ± 12.86 years, ranging from 22–75 years. 56.1% of the total eyes had BCVA <6>
Conclusion: Our results show that 20 patients (60.6%) out of 33 patients had sought an ophthalmic consultation prior, which means that ocular problems are associated with CKD and hence more awareness and importance of ocular examination, to screen patients for any potential visual threat so that necessary treatment and or advice can be given before they become irreversibly visually impaired.
