Newshub's Michael Morrah joined us in Fiji this October to report on the prevalence of diabetes in the Pacific. In a three part series we look at the affect this is having on eye health.
"One of those who have had their life permanently altered is Pauliani Lagilagi. Once a cleaner, he's not sure when or if he'll work again.
'Everything is very hard for me because of the amputation. I can't walk - [I] just stay home every day,' he told Newshub.
However his main concern is his eyesight. He's almost completely blind in his left eye.
He has diabetic retinopathy, which causes abnormal vessels to grow on the retina." (Newshub, 17 October 2017).
