People with diabetes are at 2-5 times increased risk of cataract compared to others. People with diabetes also get cataracts at a younger age. In cataract, high blood sugar causes clouding of the eye’s lenses, causing vision problems.5,6


People with diabetes are at twice the risk of glaucoma compared to others. High blood sugar affects the eye’s nerve that connects eye to the brain. This gradually damages your retina causing loss of vision.5,6
