All can cause severe vision loss or even blindness.
Diabetic eye disease may include: Diabetic Retinopathy:
damage to the blood vessels in the retina. Cataract:
clouding of the eye's lens. Cataracts develop at an earlier age in people with diabetes. Glaucoma:
increase in fluid pressure inside the eye that leads to optic nerve damage and loss of vision. A person with diabetes is nearly twice as likely to get glaucoma as other adults.
