The Connection Between Diabetes and Your Vision

There are more than 37 million American adults living with diabetes and one in four do not know they have it. Additionally, an estimated 96 million U.S. adults—more than one in three—have prediabetes, and more than eight in ten of them don’t know they have it.

Preventing the onset of diabetes is one way to protect your eye health. Anyone with diabetes is at risk for diabetes-related eye diseases such as diabetic retinopathy and macular edema, as well as glaucoma and cataracts.

There are two things you can do today to see if you may be at risk for diabetes.

  1. Schedule an eye appointment. Many people think they don’t need to visit the eye doctor unless they have poor vision or an eye condition. But that’s not necessarily true. A comprehensive eye exam can detect signs of more than 270* health conditions, including diabetes.
  2. Find out if you’re at risk by completing the American Diabetes Association 60-Second Type 2 Diabetes Risk Test.
