Diabetic Eye Disease
A group of eye problems that affect those with diabetes, includes diabetic retinopathy, cataracts, and glaucoma. The most common of these is diabetic retinopathy.
Approximately 16 million Americans have diabetes, and half are at risk for vision loss because they don’t know they have eye disease.
- Your vision may not be affected until eye disease becomes severe
- 1/3 of those diagnosed with diabetes don’t obtain recommended vision care and may be at risk of blindness
- Early treatment and follow up for eye problems can prevent or delay progression
