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. 

Common Diabetic Eye Conditions

During your diabetic eye exam, we’ll test for these common diabetes-related eye conditions. 

Diabetic Retinopathy

Diabetic retinopathy can cause irreversible vision loss. If your blood sugar levels are too high for an extended period, it can swell the blood vessels in your retina, which can affect your vision.

Glaucoma is a group of eye disorders that are common in people with diabetes. This eye condition rarely shows detectable symptoms until it progresses, making regular eye exams that much more important.

Diabetes can cause fluid buildup in the macula, which can lead to macular edema. If you suffer from macular edema, it can cause your sharp, central vision to become blurry.

Cataracts are a common eye condition that affect most people later in life, but people with diabetes are at a higher risk of developing them earlier. Cataracts cause the lenses of your eyes to become cloudy, resulting in blurry vision and vision loss.
