Eyes Are for Life Quiz

​​​​​​​​Are you at risk of developing a diabetes-related eye disease?

If you have diabetes you may have good eyesight today, but your eyes need to last you a lifetime. And unless you focus on your vision health, you could be at risk of losing your sight. Diabetes can affect many parts of the body, and people with diabetes are at a high risk of developing vision problems, usually from diabetic retinopathy. People with diabetes are also more likely to develop cataracts at a younger age and are at a higher risk of developing glaucoma.

A complete eye exam from an eye doctor is the best way to detect diabetes-related eye diseases and other eye conditions that can lead to vision loss.

Knowing your risk and making simple lifestyle changes like eating a healthy diet, quitting smoking and exercising regularly can go a long way to help you maintain your vision health.
