Usually how long can uncontrolled diabetes take to effect the eyes/cause blindness?

Variable: Uncontrolled diabetes is a precursor to the kind of blinding vascular events that can occur in the eyes. But diabetes has a variable course, and all are not susceptible in the same way so some might get into visual trouble in 3-5 years but others might take much longer. Best to follow the recommended visit to the eye doctor each year so that these treatable changes can be found early. ...Read more

For completeness I think it would be a good idea to discuss this with your Primary doctor. If you don't have diabetes please have your Primary doctor tell this to the eye doctor. Hope all goes well - no apparent reason it shouln't. ...Read more
