Dr. A.S. Desai :

Hello, Welcome to Pearl.com

Dr. A.S. Desai :

Diabetes type 2 could be responsible for recurrent corneal erosions in which there are very tiny abrasions on the surface of the cornea which result in pain, watering from the eye. They heal well with lubricating eye drops however. YOu could even apply lubricating eye ointment at bedtime such as Lacrilube eye ointment.
