My mother is diabetic and she is now on insulin. She has been complaining about her eye sight getting poor. How can we prevent that?
Diabetic eye disease is the most common cause of visual loss in the working population. Although there may be less serious reasons for poor vision, your mother needs a comprehensive eye examination by an ophthalmologist experienced in the diagnosis and treatment of diabetic retinopathy. Optimal blood sugar and blood pressure control are also very important.
