Diabetes and Vision Loss

Is it true that diabetes can cause blindness because of vision loss in the eyes?
The short answer is yes! This is caused by high blood pressure which can cause
problems like blurry vision, cataracts, glaucoma and retinopathy.
Diabetic Retinopathy is when high blood sugar damages the blood vessels in the retina. These damaged blood vessels swell and leak causing blurry vision or even stopping the blood flow.
Glaucoma is when Pressure builds up inside your eye when fluid can’t drain like it should. This can damage nerves and blood vessels, and cause changes in vision.

FAQ’s:
 
How do you know if diabetes is causing blurry vision? If blurry vision happens suddenly, a glucose test may show that blood sugar levels are too high or too low.

 
What level of blood sugar causes blurry vision? Low blood sugar can affect vision if it falls below 3.9 mmol/L. If high blood sugar is the cause, vision should become clear again when glucose levels return to 3.9-7.2 mmol/L or below 10 mmol/L 1–2 hours after eating.It is good news that managing your diabetes and getting regular eye exams can prevent vision problems.
