Hello everyone,

How are you today? emoticon cute

You may have heard that people with diabetes are at a heightened risk for eye complications, such as cataracts, glaucoma and retinopathy. Fortunately, with regular checkups, you can keep an eye on your eye health, prevent progression of any eye conditions, and start treatment if needed.

Have you encountered any eye issues related to your diabets? How have you treated them? How often do you see your eye doctor?

Feel free to share any experiences with us here!

Take care,

Posted on

I am Diabetic type 2 trying to prevent eye issues connected to my Diabetes I have yearly checks to identify any changes plus extra checks when buying new glasses. I am developing cataracts ?due to diabetes or older age. I have also dry eyes which I have to put eye drops in frequently daily, this  is due to my Rheumatoid arthritis not diabetes.
