Diabetes is a disease that affects the body’s ability to produce or use insulin effectively to control blood sugar (glucose) levels. Too much glucose in the blood for a long time can cause damage in many parts of the body, including the heart, kidneys, blood vessels and the small blood vessels in the eyes.
 
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), roughly 90 percent of diabetes-related vision loss can be prevented if detected early.
