Diabetes

There’s no separating diabetes and vision. If you have diabetes, then you should understand vision problems that increase in likelihood as a result of the disease. Diabetics are:

  • More prone to developing cataracts (a clouding of the eye’s lens) at an earlier age.
  • Almost 50% more likely to develop glaucoma, an eye disorder that damages the optic nerve often marked by an increase of internal eye pressure.
  • More likely to develop Macular edema (and macular degeneration) due to malfunctioning blood vessels in the middle region of the retina responsible for central vision.
  • At risk of devloping diabetic retinopathy; an eye disease that affects the blood vessels in the all-important retina. Nearly 45 percent of Americans diagnosed with diabetes have some stage of diabetic retinopathy.
