Diabetic eye disease refers to a group of eye problems that people with diabetes may face as a complication of diabetes. 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.
