Eye Vision Problems
Diabetes can affect your eyesight. If you suffer from diabetes mellitus, your body
does not use, nor store sugar in the blood in an appropriated manner and the high
level of sugar in the blood can damage the blood vessel in the retina. There are two
types of diabetic retinopathy: nonproliferative diabetic retinopathy (NPDR) and
proliferate diabetic retinopathy (PDR). A medical examination is the only way to detect
changes inside your eye and to diagnose and treat retinopathy before a problem is
detected in your vision.
The best treatment is to prevent the development of retinopathy as much as possible
with a strict control of your blood sugar.
