DIABETES – THE SILENT THIEF OF SIGHT

Diabetes can cause reduced vision and even blindness in a person. Diabetes mainly affects the retina which is the screen like layer inside the eye on which the image we see fall and is sent to the brain. In diabetes, the tiny blood vessels in the retina begin to leak causing swelling and damage which can become irreparable if left unattended.

So what should you do?

(1) Keep your sugar levels under good control and get them checked periodically.
(2) Meet your diabetologist periodically and follow his advise
(3) Have an eye check up as soon as possible as and when you are diagnosed to have diabetes mellitus
