How Does Diabetes Affect Your Eye Health?
Diabetes affects your blood sugar levels, and if your blood sugar levels are too high, it can lead to vision problems.
In some cases, vision problems caused by diabetes are minor and can be solved by stabilizing your blood sugar. In other cases, vision symptoms can be a sign of something more serious and may indicate that you have a diabetic eye condition.
No matter what, if you have diabetes, it’s essential to get regular diabetic eye exams to keep your eye health in pristine condition.
