Diabetes and Your Eyes
As many as 24,000 people with diabetes
lose their eyesight to diabetic eye disease each year.2
You can have diabetic eye disease and not know it.
Many times people with diabetes aren’t aware they have diabetic eye disease. That’s because in the early stages there usually aren’t any symptoms. Even people with good vision can suffer from diabetic eye disease. Often symptoms don’t appear until damage has already occurred.
Annual eye exams help prevent diabetes-related vision loss.
An annual dilated eye exam is important if you have diabetes. It gives your eye doctor a better view inside your eyes to look for vision problems and signs of diabetes, as well as other health conditions too. In fact, 90% of diabetes-related blindness can be prevented when patients receive an annual eye exam.1
Are you at risk for diabetes?
Check out these leading risks for diabetes:
Overweight or obesity
Family history of diabetes
People of African American, Hispanic, Native American, Asian, and Pacific Islander ethnicities
Women who had diabetes during pregnancy or had a baby weighing more than nine pounds
People with low HDL cholesterol or high triglycerides
Prevent this from happening to you.
