    People with diabetes should have a comprehensive dilated eye exam once a year. Diabetes can be hardly noticed because it shows no symptoms in the early time. And an early detection and timely treatment can prevent vision loss. Moreover, people with diabetes should quit smoking because smoking can damage your blood vessels and increase the risk of eye problems, especially for people with diabetes.

    For people with diabetes, they should be quite watchful for warning signs, such as Blurry, cloudy, or double vision,Flashing lights or rings around lights,Blank spots, dark spots, or floating spots in their vision, Pain, pressure, or persistent redness in their eyes. If there are any symptom, see the doctor right away.
