Dynamic Vision Protection for Patients with Diabetes
Diabetes is the number one cause of blindness in Canada. As such, those with diabetes must be especially mindful about caring for their eyes.
Diabetes can increase a person’s risk for numerous ocular diseases and conditions, including cataracts, glaucoma, and diabetic retinopathy. However, some diabetic eye diseases (such as glaucoma) are unlikely to present symptoms until they have progressed significantly. Those with diabetes should have regular eye exams to detect signs of these problems as soon as possible.
