Diabetic Vision Care – How to Have Healthy Eyes For Life
As an individual with diabetes, you know how important your diet, exercise, and prescribed medications are to maintaining optimal health. Taking great care of yourself is critical to avoiding diabetes-related eye problems and vision loss, as well. Unfortunately, far too many cases of diabetic retinopathy progress to the point of irreversible vision loss before the condition is detected. In most cases, vision remains perfect even after bleeding in the retina has begun. Because individuals of all ages with diabetes face a significantly increased risk of eye disease, vision loss, and blindness, all those with diabetes should receive a thorough diabetic eye exam at least once per year.
