Diabetes is a condition where the body is unable to regulate the amount of glucose in the blood.

Symptoms can be very mild and very difficult to spot. Poor control of Diabetes can affect the eyes by causing changes to the blood vessels of the retina.

The earlier the changes are noticed in the eyes the better the outcome if any treatment is needed. People with Diabetes are more prone to cataract and macular changes causing reduced vision and should have regular eye examinations.
