Have you ever paused to reflect on the connection between your eyes and your overall well-being?

Often overlooked, our eyes play a crucial role in our daily lives, offering us the gift of sight and insight into our surroundings. For individuals living with diabetes, this connection takes on added significance. Diabetes can have profound effects on eye health, leading to conditions such as diabetic retinopathy, macular edema, cataracts, and glaucoma. The impact of these conditions on vision underscores the importance of regular diabetic eye exams.


Recent studies suggest that one in three Canadians is living with diabetes or prediabetes, yet knowledge of risk and complications of disease remains low.


Diabetes: is a disease in which your body either can't produce insulin or can't properly use the insulin it produces. Insulin is a hormone produced by your pancreas.

Insulin's role is to regulate the amount of glucose (sugar) in the blood. Blood sugar must be carefully regulated to ensure that the body functions properly. Too much blood sugar can cause damage to organs, blood vessels, and nerves. Your body also needs insulin in order to use sugar for energy.

Eleven million Canadians are living with diabetes or prediabetes. Chances are, diabetes affects you or someone you know.


Diabetic eye disease: refers to a group of eye problems that can result from diabetes, including diabetic retinopathy, diabetic macular edema, cataracts, and glaucoma. Here is an overview of these conditions:

Diabetic Retinopathy: This is the most common diabetic eye disease and occurs when high blood sugar levels damage the blood vessels in the retina. It can lead to vision loss or blindness if left untreated.

(DME): DME is a complication of diabetic retinopathy where fluid leaks into the macula, the central part of the retina responsible for sharp vision. This can cause blurred vision and central vision loss.

Cataracts: People with diabetes are more likely to develop cataracts, a clouding of the eye's lens. Cataracts can cause blurry vision, glare, and difficulty with night vision.

Glaucoma: Diabetes increases the risk of developing glaucoma, a group of eye diseases that damage the optic nerve and can result in vision loss or blindness.

Managing diabetes well through blood sugar control, regular eye exams, and early treatment of any eye problems are crucial in preventing or minimizing diabetic eye disease complications. If you have diabetes, it is essential to work with your healthcare team to protect your eyes and preserve your vision.
