How can diabetes affect your vision?
Diabetes mellitus is one of the leading causes of irreversible blindness worldwide. Diabetes can affect your vision and eyes in many different ways. Fluctuating blood sugar levels causes the lens inside the eye to swell and shrink throughout the day. Patients may experience blurry vision that may come and go over the day as a result of changes in the blood sugar levels throughout the day. The most serious eye condition associated with diabetes involves the blood vessels that supply the retina. The earlier stage of diabetic retinopathy is called non-proliferative diabetic retinopathy. Elevated blood sugar levels damage the walls of small blood vessels in the retina, which lead to accumulation of fluid (edema), protein deposits (hard exudates) and blood (hemorrhages) inside the retina. Patients may experience central vision blur, visual distortion, and a blind spot. If detected at an early stage, treatment usually is not required. The more advanced stage of diabetic retinopathy is called proliferative diabetic retinopathy. The damaged blood vessels from elevated blood sugar lead to decreased blood flow and lower amounts of oxygen delivered to the retina. In response to the lack of oxygen, the body may form new blood vessels called retinal neovascularization. These blood vessels are harmful because they are extremely fatigue and unstable. If left untreated, retinal neovascularization can lead to bleeding and scar tissue formation inside the eye and result in permanent vision loss. Early detection is vital to prevent vision loss. Treatment for diabetic retinopathy includes Laser, Vitrectomy surgery, and intraocular injections. Dilated fundus examinations are recommended for all diabetic patients.
