Eye Health


Monitor Blood Glucose (Blood Sugar)

When blood glucose (blood sugar) is too high, it can affect the shape of the eye’s lens, causing blurry vision, which goes back to normal after blood glucose stabilizes. High blood glucose can also damage the blood vessels in the eyes. Maintaining good control of blood glucose helps prevent these problems.

Monitor Blood Pressure and Cholesterol

High blood pressure and high cholesterol can increase risk for eye disease and vision loss. Keeping both under control will not only help the eyes but overall health as well.
