Practical Tips to Care for Your Eyes

While we use all of our senses in our day-to-day lives, there is one that we rely on more than any other – our eyesight. Unfortunately, our sight is something that is very easy to take for granted, even if we need to use prescriptive eyewear. Many of us fail to realize that if our eyes are unhealthy, our vision will be significantly compromised. Therefore, it is important that we are just as committed to the health of our eyes as we are to the health and wellbeing of the rest of our body.

Risks of Diabetic Eye Disease

Diabetic eye disease is a fairly common complication of diabetes that occurs when high blood sugar levels cause damage to the retina which is the part of the eye responsible for transmitting what we see to our brains.
