People with diabetes need to visit their eye doctor annually. People with diabetes are at greater risk for three serious eye problems: cataracts, glaucoma and diabetic retinopathy. Diabetes is the leading cause of blindness in adults diagnosed with diabetes ages 18 to 74. Regular eye exams can ensure that minor issues remain minor and major problems are treated as soon as possible for the best outcome.
