Patients who have diabetes both type I and type II need a comprehensive annual eye examination. This includes dilation and examination of the retina for any diabetic retinal changes. The diabetic complications include macular edema, hemorrhages of the retina, exudates, hemorrhages into the vitreous and ultimate loss of vision. The key point to delay these complications is an excellent control of the blood sugar level. Individuals with diabetes will have blurry vision because of the fluctuations in their blood sugar levels. Both an increase and a decrease in the blood sugar level may cause a blurry vision. It is ideal to get the refraction done when your blood sugar level is stable. Diabetes has other complications such as cataracts, glaucoma, subconjunctival hemorrhage, etc.
