This unexpected symptom in your eyes may indicate diabetes

Blurred vision: Symptom of diabetes

The Mayo Clinic team explains:

High blood glucose levels draw fluid from tissues, including the lenses of the eyes. This affects the ability to focus. High blood glucose levels draw fluid from tissues, including the lenses of the eyes. This affects the ability to focus.

He too National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases says:

“High blood glucose can change fluid levels or cause the tissues in your eyes that help you focus to swell, causing blurred vision“.

And adds:

Therefore, although this symptom may go unnoticed, it is important to have your eyes checked regularly, to diagnose any problem in time and treat the disease.

How is the sight of a diabetic?

If these vision changes from diabetes progress undetected, it is likely that the person may develop diabetic retinopathy, vision loss, or blindness.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) indicate:

“Diabetic retinopathy occurs when high blood sugar levels damage the blood vessels of the retina (a light-sensitive layer of cells at the back of the eye).”

And continues:

Sometimes new blood vessels grow, but they are not normal and can cause more vision problems. Diabetic retinopathy usually affects both eyes.”

Call your eye doctor if you notice these changes in your vision, especially if they come on suddenly:

  • Blurry vision
  • see dots
  • See flashes of light
  • Have blind spots in your field of vision
  • distorted vision
  • Difficulty reading or doing detailed work
