Diabetic Vision Loss and BlindnessUnmanaged type 1 and type 2 diabetes can lead to severe eye problems, causing diabetic vision loss and blindness. People with diabetes are at risk of diabetic macular edema (DME), the most common cause of blindness in people with diabetic retinopathy. Uncontrolled high blood sugar levels over a long period can damage the blood vessels of the retina.
People with diabetes must keep track of their DME. Monitoring the progression of the condition helps one’s doctor in finding an effective treatment.
