Diabetes Can Affect Your Vision
How Can I Protect My Eyes?
Blurred vision is a sign that blood sugar levels are high. In the short term, blurred vision can go away after blood sugar levels return to normal. Damage to the retina can occur if blood sugar levels remain high for an extended time. Retinal damage can lead to many diabetic eye diseases.
The inner lining at the back of your eye is called the retina. When blood sugar levels are high, it can cause blockages in your eyes’ blood vessels, making them bulge, break, and leak fluid into the retina. This condition is called diabetic retinopathy. If this disease progresses, it can lead to serious vision problems.
Regular eye care is essential when it comes to treating diabetic eye diseases. Experts recommend that those affected by diabetes undergo a dilated eye exam once a year.
