Diabetes Can Compromise Your Vision
We’ve known there is a link between diabetes and eye health and vision for a while now. According to the Canadian Association of Optometrists, the risk of blindness is 25 times higher for someone with diabetes, making it the leading cause of blindness in Canada. Other than vision loss, diabetes can also increase the chances of developing serious ocular conditions and diseases.
That’s why, if you have diabetes, it’s critical to keep your eyes a priority. At River Heights Eye Care, we work closely with you to ensure your eyes are healthy and in check at all times. Book your next appointment today.
