Eye exams can be the first clue for detecting diabetes. Finding issues early gives patients a better chance of preventing damage.
The effects of diabetes on the eye can cause vision damage and even blindness because of diabetic retinopathy.
This is caused by excess sugar in the blood that swells the vessels in the eye, which can cause them to bleed. They can also grow into the retina itself which can cause vision loss.
90% of all pre-diabetic/diabetic-related vision loss and blindness can be avoided by getting regular eye exams.
