How to Prevent Eye Disease with Diabetes

How to Prevent Eye Disease with Diabetes - Alma Health

If you have diabetes, high blood sugars can cause damage in the blood vessels of your eyes.

As a result, this may lead to diabetic retinopathy (problems in the retina), cataracts (cloudy eye lens), and glaucoma (pressure in the eye).

How you can prevent or delay eye disease:

Follow these steps to prevent eye complications:

  • Get a dilated eye exam at least once a year: an ophthalmologist can check for and treat any signs of disease early to prevent complications.
  • Ensure that your blood sugars are in target range most of the time: Avoid highs and lows as much as possible to protect your eyes.
  • Keep blood pressure in check.
  • Make sure your cholesterol is well managed.

Doing these things helps lower your risk of eye disease and vision loss.
