Diabetic Eye Disease: A Dangerous Complication
Posted on 05/19/2015 21:25
Diabetes is a serious concern for doctors here in the United States. According to the American Diabetes Association’s 2014 report, 29.1 million Americans had diabetes in 2012. That’s 9.3% of the population. Unfortunately, diabetes is not just a long-term condition that affects a patient's blood sugar levels. Over time, diabetes can also affect other areas of a diabetic patient's health - including their eyes and vision.
