Diabetic Eye Diseases

Diabetic eye disease refers to a number of different conditions that can affect the eyes of people with diabetes. Diabetic retinopathy, cataracts, and glaucoma are all considered diabetic eye diseases. Diabetic retinopathy is the most common type of diabetic eye disease, affecting about 95% of all people with diabetes. This condition occurs when high blood sugar levels damage the tiny blood vessels in the retina, leading to vision problems such as blurred or distorted vision, or even blindness. At Eye See, with locations in Lincolnshire and Des Plaines, IL, we are experts in optometry and providing relief for diabetic eye diseases.

What is retinopathy?

Retinopathy is a condition that can occur in people with diabetes, when high blood sugar levels damage the tiny blood vessels in the retina. This can lead to vision problems such as blurred vision, distorted vision, and blindness.

What are cataracts?

Cataracts are a condition in which the lens of the eye becomes cloudy, impairing vision. Cataracts are the most common cause of blindness in the world, and can occur in people with or without diabetes.

What is glaucoma?

Glaucoma is a condition in which the pressure inside the eye increases, leading to optic nerve damage and vision loss. Glaucoma can occur in people with or without diabetes. If you are experiencing any changes in your vision, it is important to see our eye doctor for a diagnosis. Diabetic eye diseases can be treated successfully if they are caught early, so it is important to get regular eye exams if you have diabetes.
