Yes. Diabetes is the number one cause of blindness in the United States. Diabetes causes the blood vessels in the back of the eye to become fragile. Sometimes the vessels leak fluid and can affect central vision. In many cases this fluid will be reabsorbed. In later stages of diabetic eye disease new blood vessels are formed. They can bleed and destroy large areas of vision and potentially cause blindness. Diabetics have a higher risk of other eye problems such as glaucoma and cataracts.
