Diabetes & Your Eyes

People with diabetes are at higher risk for eye diseases, such as glaucoma, cataracts, and diabetic retinopathy. That is why it is extremely important for diabetics to obtain annual retinal eye examinations.

According to American Optometric Association’s American Eye-Q® survey, only 54 percent of diabetics regularly visit their eye doctor.

Early detection and treatment can save your vision! Diabetes is the leading cause of preventable blindness in adults!
