Diabetic Eye Exam
Diabetes affects the body in many different ways and can have pronounced effects on the eyes. High blood sugar due to diabetes causes cataracts, glaucoma and blurry vision. Diabetes may also damage your eyes by attacking the blood vessels on the retina at the back of your eyeball. If you are diabetic, it is important to schedule regular diabetic eye exams since diabetes-related conditions can go undiagnosed for years if the patient does not show any symptoms.
