Physical diseases and disorders can be a strain on every area of your body. For patients who suffer from diabetes, eye impairments and difficulties often occur. Watch this video to learn more about the visual problems caused by diabetes.
Diabetic retinopathy is a common visual impairment for people suffering from diabetes. In this condition, the cells located in the small blood vessels in your eyes become damaged. This damage makes it difficult for the cells to deliver essential nutrients and oxygen to other areas of your eyes. As a result, your eyes begin to leak protein, decreasing your vision.
