When you have diabetes, you have a high risk of eye problems that can lead to severe damage or blindness. This risk becomes even higher if you are between 40 to 60 years old age if you have had diabetes for a number of years.
What is especially bad is that many times the eyes are damaged before any symptoms are felt. So it is very important to visit your eye doctor regularly (at least once a year)-and immediately if you notice anything wrong with your eyes.
