Diabetes and Your Vision
Diabetes can be damaging to your vision in the following way. In diabetes, small vessels of the eye can be affected. Small blood vessels are called capillaries and they supply blood to the eyes, kidneys, fingers, and toes. In diabetes, weak spots develop in the walls of the smallest blood vessels. Balloon-like outpouchings called microaneurysms occur which are known as diabetic retinopathy.
The supplement, Lutein, and green leafy vegetables are great for protecting your eyes!
