Eye care is especially important for people with diabetes because they are at increased risk of developing eye complications from the disease. All people with diabetes should take precautions to help reduce their risk of developing eye problems. Here are some eye care tips.

 

  1. Maintain control of your blood glucose levels.
  2. Keep your blood pressure in control. High blood pressure by itself can lead to eye disease, so if you have high blood pressure as well as diabetes, it is especially important that you take steps to control both conditions.
  3. Get your blood cholesterol levels under control.
  4. Eat a healthy diet.
  5. Avoid smoking.
  6. Exercise regularly.
  7. Schedule regular appointments with your eye doctor so that any eye problem can be detected early and treated.
