Blindness is 25 times more common in diabetics than in non diabetics. High blood glucose can make the blood vessels in the eyes bleed leading to blindness. Early symptoms of eye damage include blurred or distorted vision; seeing floaters or flashes of light, large floating red or black spots, or large areas that look like floating hair, cotton fibers, or spider webs; or pain in your eyes. However eye damage is asymptomatic in many patients.

 

Dr. Srikanth's Diabetes Specialities Centre recommends you to Schedule a yearly master health check-up and regular eye exams. Your regular diabetes checkups aren't meant to replace yearly health check-up or routine eye exams. Go for yearly eye check up even if you donít have any eye complaints or even if your eye sight is normal. This is the best way to prevent your eye disease. In this exam, the eye doctor puts drops in your eyes to dilate your pupils. When the pupils are dilated, or big, the doctor can see into the back of the eye. This is called a dilated eye exam and it doesnít hurt. Finding eye problems early and getting treatment right away will help prevent more serious problems later on.

 

If your eyes are already damaged, an eye doctor may be able to save your sight with laser treatments (a light beam is aimed into the retina of the damaged eye to close off leaking blood vessels) or surgery (removes leaked blood and fluids from the vitreous of your eye).

 

Diabetes also increases the risk of other serious vision conditions, such as cataracts and glaucoma.
