Diabetes and How it Can Effect the Human Eye….

You should plan to make regular eye doctor visits when you have diabetes. High blood sugar can lead to problems like blurry vision, cataracts, glaucoma, and retinopathy. In fact, diabetes is the primary cause of blindness in adults ages 20 to 74. High blood sugar can cause the eye to swell which could change your ability to see. When this does occur and the vision gets blurry its best to see your eye doctor before buying new glasses so your doctor can let you know if its a symptom or more serious problem. Anyone can get cataract, but people with diabetes tend to get them earlier, and they get worse faster. All these are serious reasons why monitoring your eye health with diabetes is so important. So if you are a diabetic patient with any signs or symptoms of blurred vision book your appointment today!
