Diabetes Can Cause Eyesight Problems

Your eyes are complex and influenced by your overall health. Diabetes causes eyesight damage in many ways if it isn’t controlled. To keep your eyes healthy and sharp, you need to practice strict diabetes maintenance. Potential diabetic eyesight problems you may face include:

Glaucoma

When it comes to diabetes and eyesight, glaucoma is a common issue. It is caused by increased pressure within the eyeball (intraocular pressure). There are many types of glaucoma. Some of them are related to eye structure, steroid usage, and diabetes.

Your eyesight can be lost completely, resulting in blindness if glaucoma is left untreated. If you suspect you have glaucoma from diabetes affecting your vision, contact us for treatment in Baton Rouge at 225-768-8833.

Retinopathy

Retinopathy is a condition that affects the ability of the eye to send and receive light signals to the brain. The retina is a highly vascularized layer made up of cells located on the backside of the eyeball. Tiny blood vessels can increase from retinopathy and cause blurred vision. High blood glucose levels can cause these vessels to bleed.

If you have concerns about diabetic retinopathy eyesight, make an appointment at Retina & Vitreous of Louisiana in Baton Rouge so we can help restore your sight.

Cataracts

Even people who don’t have diabetes can develop eyesight problems such as cataracts as their eyes become more rigid and cloudy over time. Diabetics are more likely to develop cataracts than those with normal blood sugar levels. The most common symptoms of cataracts are halos around lights (such as street lamps and car headlights) and the need for brighter illumination to do everyday tasks. Our experienced doctors can assist with your diabetes eyesight problems in Baton Rouge at our office and restore your vision.

Don’t suffer from cataracts longer than you need; contact us today and get the treatment you need for a better quality of life.

Blurred Vision

People with diabetes and eyesight problems may experience consistent blurred vision. If you’re struggling with this symptom, call us for treatment options.

Macular Degeneration

Diabetes causes the retina’s small oval structure called the macula to deteriorate. This macula is responsible for creating the images in the middle of your field of vision. Macular disease is caused by genetics, high blood sugars, and age (over 50).

If this diabetes eyesight problem is affecting you, call us at our Baton Rouge or satellite offices now. We’ll help treat your vision, so you have more freedom in your life.
