People with diabetes need to be sure they visit their eye doctor regularly. People with diabetes are at greater risk for three serious eye problems: cataracts, glaucoma and diabetic retinopathy. Diabetes is the leading cause of blindness in adults ages 20 to 74. Regular checkups can make sure that minor issues remain minor and major problems are treated as soon as possible for the best possible outcome.
