The longer you have diabetes, the more likely you are to develop retinopathy. This condition causes blood vessels in the retina to become damaged, which can impact your vision.
Keeping your blood sugar under control can lower your risk of developing retinopathy. Controlling your blood pressure and cholesterol can also help slow or prevent the disease.
There are several treatments available for diabetic retinopathy. Procedures such as laser photocoagulation (which is also used to treat macular degeneration) and vitrectomy can prevent blindness in most people. Early treatment of diabetic retinopathy is generally more successful, so seek treatment promptly if you are diagnosed with this condition.

How to Prevent
Eye Damage from Diabetes
For most patients, damage from diabetic eye conditions is gradual. In general, most people are able to slow down or prevent eye issues from getting worse.
It is crucial to attend regular eye exams if you have diabetes. Your doctor can monitor your eye health and identify early signs of problems. In addition, keeping your blood sugar low and maintaining a healthy lifestyle can keep your eyes healthy.
