Diabetes and Your Eye Health

VP Blog

With about 37 million people in the U.S. having diabetes, the chances are good that someone you know, or maybe even you, has this disease. Diabetes can have a significant impact on your overall health and your eye health. Left unmanaged and untreated, diabetes can lead to many health complications and increase your risk of developing other health issues. People with diabetes are at increased risk of developing health issues, such as:

  • Heart attack
  • Stroke
  • Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD)
  • Heart Disease

Because diabetes impacts your blood vessels, it can lead to other diabetes complications such as:

  • Nerve damage
  • Vision loss
  • Hearing Loss

The good news? Early detection of diabetes can help preserve your vision and help you stay healthy.
