How Does Diabetes Affect Your Eyes?

If diabetes runs in your family, or if you’ve been diagnosed with the condition yourself, you should be seeing your optometrist regularly for checkups.

Both Type I and Type 2 diabetes can have damaging effects on your eyes, especially if your blood sugar levels aren’t properly managed.

High blood sugar levels can lead to vision loss from eye diseases like cataracts, glaucoma, and diabetic retinopathy, and the longer you’ve been living with diabetes, the greater your risks are of developing eye complications.

Fortunately, New Baltimore Optometry is here to help! With the proper management and care, we can help you preserve your vision and keep your eyes healthy. Contact New Baltimore Optometry today to learn more about how we can help and to schedule your eye exam!
