The most common eye problem is usually diabetic retinopathy. This is one of the biggest causes of blindness. Other problems include cataracts, and glaucoma. These two diseases are easily treatable by your eye doctor.

Yeah! Diabetes and vision problems are related to each other. Recently I read an article on 'How diabetes affects your eyes' , it says that the risk for diabetic eye disease is high in older adults with diabetes. Diabetic retinopathy, cataract, glaucoma and diabetic macular edema are some of the diseases which are linked to diabetes. Regular eye check-ups, maintaining a healthy weight, adding a number of physical activities in the daily routine, quitting the smoking habit, controlling the cholesterol levels, blood pressure, A1C, etc are the things that should be considered to avoid the eye complications from diabetes.
