Did you know that May is Healthy Vision Month? (https://nei.nih.gov/hvm/about_hvm)
As most people know, diabetes puts eyes at risk. So I decided to take the opportunity to explore eye health in relation to diabetes. There is a great piece here on Diabetic Connect by a CDE I respect, Amy Campbell. She talks specifically about the two most common eye conditions among us: Diabetic Eye Disease, and Diabetic Retinopathy. The good news is she says "Diabetes doesn't have to threaten your eyesight." So far I've been lucky. Even though diabetes burnout has hit me several times in my 20 years living with this disease, during which times I've not managed my blood sugar adequately, I've experienced minimal problems with my eyes.
How are your eyes? How do you make sure they stay as healthy as possible?
