Diabetes & Your Eye Health

Diabetes affects your eyes when your blood sugar levels get too high. When this happens, it can cause swelling in the blood vessels in the back of your eyes. 

Most serious diabetic eye diseases begin with problems in your blood vessels.

Diabetic Retinopathy & Diabetic Macular Edema

Diabetic retinopathy is a progressive eye disease that causes vision loss. This eye condition occurs when the retina becomes damaged due to diabetes complications.

Diabetic macular edema (DME) is a complication of diabetic retinopathy. DME affects the centre of your retina, called the macula, which is responsible for central vision.

If you have diabetes, you are almost 50% more likely to develop glaucoma. Glaucoma is a group of eye diseases that occurs when the pressure inside of your eyes increases, which can occur when your blood vessels become damaged.

Cataracts are an eye disease that results in a clouding of the eye’s lens. If you have diabetes, you’re more likely to develop cataracts, which can cause gradual vision loss.
