Diabetes does not neccessarily lead to vision loss. However, people with the disease may experience a condition in which blood vessels that feed the retina begin to break. The resulting damage may appear as spots or blanks in the field of vision. This condition is called Diabetic Retinopathy.
In more severe cases, blood clots and scar tissue can develop on the retina, which can lead to complete blindness. Everyone with Diabetes should have regular eye exams and maintain good diabetic management. If the disease is detected, leaking blood vessels may sometimes be closed by laser surgery.
