Living with diabetes means careful control of your diet, monitoring your blood sugar and keeping a watchful eye of your overall health. While it is a manageable disease, it is a very serious condition which can lead to multiple health problems. One such problem can impact your vision. In fact, diabetes is the leading cause of blindness in adults.
If you suffer from diabetes, it is important to visit your eye doctor at least once a year to ensure your eyes are healthy and you are not showing signs of retinopathy risk. Retinopathy is a general term applied to vision problems caused by diabetes. Like most health issues, the earlier a problem is diagnosed, the better the chances are for treatment and recovery.
Optometrist are able to diagnose many eye conditions during regular eye exams. Whether you have diabetes or not, annual eye exams are an important part of your overall health care and should not be missed.
