Comprehensive Diabetic Care: Focus on Eye Related Changes

Diabetes, type 1 and 2, causes eye problems and may lead to blindness. Common eye problems include cataracts, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, non-proliferative diabetic retinopathy, proliferative retinopathy, and diabetic macular edema. Tight glucose control and regular screening are critical to prevent and monitor disease progression. Diabetics need to engage in self-monitoring activities including a healthy lifestyle, medications, blood glucose monitoring, and efforts to decrease risk of complications. Persons with limited vision due to diabetes work with health care providers in adapting techniques to ensure safe, effective self-care practices.

Learning Objectives:
  • Discuss the incidence of diabetes in the United States.
  • Describe eye complications associated with diabetes.
  • Identify self-management strategies for persons with diabetes and impaired vision
