Diabetic Eye Disease
Diabetes and eye diseases go hand in hand. As a matter of fact, one of the major concerns for diabetic patients is that they might lose their eyesight if their sugar levels are not kept under control for long. A question raging in the minds of people might be how can diabetes which is a disease of the pancreas can affect such a dire effect on your vision?
This can be simply explained by the occurrence of diabetes in our bloodstream. When we eat food, it gives us glucose which when broken by the natural insulin of our body releases small cells of energy. In a diabetic patient, his natural insulin mechanism fails and the unbroken glucose gets absorbed into our bloodstream thus causing elevated levels of sugar in our body.
You may have heard that diabetes causes eye problems and may lead to blindness. People with diabetes do have a higher risk of permanent blindness and other various eye problems than people without diabetes. Diabetes can affect the eyes and vision in a number of ways. It may lead to frequent fluctuations in vision, cataract in young age, decreased vision due to an involvement of optic nerve, temporary paralysis of the muscles controlling the movement of eyes and thus double vision, the Incidence glaucoma is higher in diabetics. The most significant complication of diabetes in an eye is diabetic retinopathy. This may cause irreversible loss of vision in later stages.
