Diabetes can have a number of effects on the eye. Blurry vision can be one of the early signs of diabetes and if you have diabetes you are more likely to develop cataracts and glaucoma.
If you have diabetes this does not necessarily mean that your sight will be affected, but there is a higher risk.
The risk is reduced if your diabetes is well controlled, you have a healthy diet, your blood pressure and cholesterol levels are normal and if you avoid smoking.
Many of the changes in the eye can be prevented by early intervention but this will only happen if you have regular eye examinations.
If you have noticed deterioration in your vision you should contact us and book an eye examination.
