Diabetes Complications

People who have diabetes can experience different eye problems due to the damage of blood vessels in eyes. High blood sugar level can lead to blurry vision or serious diseases like glaucoma, cataracts and etc. The most common eye problem for people with diabetes is Retinopathy. It damages blood vessels in the retina which is the light-sensitive tissue that lines the back of the eye. In the later stages, it can lead new blood vessels to grow over the retina, which will result in the development of scar tissue and as a result, Retinal detachment might occur, which leads to blindness. Besides that, if blood vessels grow on the iris, another disease, Glaucoma occurs. Unfortunately, diabetes is the main reason of blindness in adults. Diabetic people are 25 times more likely to get this diseases and lose vision, than those who don’t have diabetes.

Even though blurry vision is one of the main symptoms of different eye diseases, sometimes it can be a small problem caused by high blood sugar. If that is the problem, in order to get back to the normal vision, you should get your blood sugar into the target range. If it doesn’t help and your vision is getting worse you should visit a doctor as you might be facing one of the diseases mentioned above.

Diabetes Complications


  • I’ve been suffering from Diabetes for years until lately, it had started to affect my vision. I thought I will never be able to see again, so the moment I’ve noticed my vision getting blurry, I went for a consultation at Spanish Eye Clinic in Dubai. They had helped me get through this phase and encouraged me to take better care of myself.

  • What I love about Spanish Eye Clinic is that they design a treatment plan that is personalised to the level and severity of the Diabetic condition. They show genuine concern to their patients and their laser procedures had always helped me improve my vision. I totally recommend them.

  • If not for Spanish Eye Clinic, I would’ve been blind today due to my diabetic retinopathy. Thanks to their treatment, which includes the best medication, eye injections, and surgery, I can see clearly today. The eye specialists do have in-depth experience on handling such vision problems due to diabetic complications.
