WHAT DOES DIABETES MEAN FOR YOUR VISION
Diabetes, a group of diseases that affect how your body processes sugar, can have a significant impact on your day to day life. Most people have a general idea of how it affects the body, but you may not understand how diabetes can affect your vision in particular.
Diabetes increases your chances of developing a variety of eye diseases, including open-angle glaucoma, cataracts, and diabetic retinopathy. If you have been diagnosed with diabetes, it is recommended by the Canadian Optometry Association that you have your eyes examined thoroughly at least once per year.
