Looking after your eyes


Looking after your eyes is important when you have diabetes.

You have an increased risk of developing eye problems which, if left untreated, can lead to poor vision and blindness.

You can greatly reduce your risk of serious vision loss from diabetes by having regular eye examinations and receiving treatment early. The earlier eye problems are detected and treated, the better the result.

Diabetes can cause both short-term and long-term problems with your eyes.
