Diabetics are very prone to eye diseases and should have their eyes tested regularly – it is in fact, one of the leading cause of blindness in 24 to 74 year olds. Even those who manage their diabetes well will often eventually still suffer from diabetic eye disease and therefore should have their eyes tested annually. Diabetics are twice as prone to cataracts, diabetic retinopathy and glaucoma as other people. Symptoms of eye problems include: blurry vision, seeing double, seeing spots or floaters, sore eyes, feeling of pressure in eye, loss of peripheral vision and difficulty reading.
