Diabetes and Eye Health

Diabetes is characterized by elevated blood sugar levels due to insufficient insulin production or ineffective insulin utilization. Managing diabetes effectively is essential for overall well-being, and recognizing its implications on eye health is equally imperative. The eyes are particularly susceptible to the effects of uncontrolled diabetes, as prolonged high blood sugar can harm the tiny blood vessels in the retina, leading to diabetic retinopathy. This condition may cause blurry vision, dark spots, and even vision loss. Early detection through regular eye check-ups and proactive diabetes management can significantly minimize the impact on eye health, empowering individuals to enjoy a life of clarity and visual vibrancy.
