Understanding diabetic eye conditions

Here is an excellent article on the RNIB website which explains the various effects diabetes - types 1 and 2 - can have on the eyes.  Do have a read.  It's set out very clearly and describes how the eye works, temporary blurring (which often occrus in people with diabetes), diabetic Retinopathy, diabetic Macular Oedema, and Cataracts.  It's vital to attend your eye screening appointments every year if you are over 12 years of age and have diabetes.
