How can diabetes affect my vision?

Diabetes is a systemic health condition that can affect every part of the body, including your eyes. Because it makes it more difficult for your body to process sugars, you may sometimes suffer from high blood sugar levels, resulting in damage over time to the small blood vessels in your eyes. This damage can cause blood and other fluids to leak onto the sensitive back part of your eye, called the retina, resulting in a condition known as diabetic retinopathy. Without treatment, you may suffer significant vision loss and even blindness. 

Are you experiencing vision loss connected with your diabetes? Speak with our low vision optometrists in Mississippi. We can offer you lifestyle and nutritional advise to reduce the further impact of diabetic retinopathy, and low vision aids and devices that can help you make the most of your remaining vision.
