VIEWS FOR 20/20 by Dr. Mark Skowron FOCUSING ON DIABETES Blurred vision is one of the many possible complications that can arise from diabetes. This inability to bring images into sharp focus can be subtle or obvious, can change throughout the day, and can come on slowly or rapidly. Short-term blurriness among diabetics can occur as a consequence of high blood sugar levels that force fluid into and out of the eyes, causing the eye lens to swell. Long-term uncontrolled diabetes can produce high blood sugar levels that damage small blood vessels, leading to problems in the retina that cause blurred vision. In either case, diabetics should regard blurred vision as a sign of less than desirable blood sugar management that should be addressed. Diabetic eye disease is most commonly associated with diabetic retinopathy, which is characterized by damage to the blood vessels of the retina and can lead to blindness. According to the National Eye Institute, it can also cause premature cataracts and glaucoma. When you need to schedule an eye exam, please contact SKOWRON EYE CARE. At Skowron eyecare, your 20/20 vision is our mission. P.S. Anyone already diagnosed with diabetes should schedule routine eye examinations at least once a year to help detect problems while they are still minor. SKOWRON EYE CARE 370 N.
