Diabetes affects several parts of the body, including the eyes. Annual eye exams are critical to treatment and prevention. Diabetes often causes uncontrolled or fluctuating blood sugar (glucose) levels that affect the eyes and lead to small blood vessel damage to the retina. Weak blood vessels in the retina can deliver an excessive amount of blood to the remaining parts of the eye, leading to conditions such as glaucoma, cataracts or other vision complications.
