Diabetic Eye Care
Side vision is most often affected as vision starts to fade. Some warning signs include blurred vision, seeing colored rings around lights, loss of side vision, pain, and redness of the eye.
Diabetes affects the blood vessels, causing them to leak fluid, fats, and blood into the retina. This causes the retina to swell. If the disease is allowed to progress, new blood vessels can develop which hemorrhage and can pull off the retina causing a retinal detachment. A yearly eye exam and close control of blood sugar and blood pressure are the three steps to preventing complications, including blindness, from this disease.
