Diabetic Eye Disease News and Research

Diabetic eye disease refers to a group of eye problems that people with diabetes may face as a complication of diabetes. All can cause severe vision loss or even blindness. Diabetic eye disease may include, diabetic retinopathy — damage to the blood vessels in the retina, Cataract—clouding of the eye's lens, glaucoma—increase in fluid pressure inside the eye that leads to optic nerve damage and loss of vision. A person with diabetes is nearly twice as likely to get glaucoma as other adults.
