Type Of Eye Problems
Retinopathy, sugar: The major reason for vision loss with type ii diabetes is retinopathy from poorly control disease. You should aim to keep your hba1c as low as possible; at least under 7.0 and lower if you can get it since that relates strongly to the development of retinal changes.

If the vision is bad or there is redness/pain, see your ophthalmologist. ...Read more
