How Diabetes Affects Your Eyes?

MBBS Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery, MD Ophthalmology, Senior Residency
Ophthalmologist, Delhi
How Diabetes Affects Your Eyes?

If you are diabetic then it is important that you visit your ophthalmologist for regular check-ups. Diabetes is known to be one of main causes for blindness across all age groups. If you suffer from bouts of blurred vision then it is not likely due to a long term vision problem. It is temporary and usually occurs due to fluctuating blood sugar levels in the body.

How diabetes affects your eyes?
The lens of your eyes can swell if you are a diabetic, and this can impair your ability to see causing blurry vision. In order to rectify this problem, it is important for you to get your blood sugar levels under optimal levels. This entire procedure of reducing blood sugar levels may take three months or more.

Eye problems that are caused by diabetes-
The major eye problems that can occur due to diabetes are-

  1. Cataract: Cataract occurs when the lens of your eyes become foggy or cloudy. Although cataract mostly occurs to people who are middle aged or above sixty, you can get affected by this disorder at an earlier age if you are diabetic. Also, the deterioration or clouding of the lens progresses at a much faster rate than usual. Cataracts lead to an inability to focus as the retina is covered by cloudy layer.
  2. Glaucoma: This is another disorder that can occur due to diabetes. This is characterized by the buildup of pressure in the eye due to the fluids within it not draining properly. This intense pressure damages the nerves and blood vessels in the eyes, thus impairing your ability to see.
  3. Diabetic Retinopathy: Diabetic retinopathy is a disorder characterized by damage to the vessels in the retina that carry blood. It can occur if you have either of the type 2 or type 1 diabetes. If not treated in time it can lead to blindness.

If you have a history of diabetes or even borderline diabetic tendencies, it is highly advisable to constantly check your blood sugar levels and also get your eye checked at regular intervals, especially if you feel even the minutest vision problems.

Greetings lybrate-user, Squint means deviation of the eye which is treatable by surgery with very high success rate. Small minority of cases may be corrected by wearing spectacles. If eyes are shaking constantly, that's a separate condition called Nystagmus, which is not possible to correct in most patients. If vision in one or both eyes is poor, squint may reappear after few years. Price varies from place to place, anywhere between 15,000 to 30,000 depending on type and complexity of the squint. In case you have further queries, feel free to connect with me. Regards Dr. Manik.

Greetings, Sjogren syndrome is an autoimmune disease causing joint pains and dryness of eyes and mouth. Treatment is usually done by a rheumatologist, and involves steroid therapy or immunosuppressive therapy. For the eye problem, frequent use of lubricating drops and cyclosporine eye drops is required. Feel free to connect with me in cas you have further queries. Regards.

5 Benefits Of LASIK!

5 Benefits Of LASIK!

The eyes are such a complex structure that even minute changes in the extremely complicated internal structure affects the most important function of the eye, vision. And anyone with a vision problem can vouch for the extent of effect it has on the quality of life. Whether you are able to see only things at a close distance or far off, it is definitely difficult.

The good news, however, is that with the thorough understanding of the eye’s structure, these abnormalities can be corrected and absolutely normal vision can be restored. While surgery was the only mode of correction a few decades ago, but laser has come to rescue, especially in intricate structures like the eye.

LASIK is an abbreviation for laser in-situ keratomileusis. This is the most common and popular method to correct vision in errors of refraction. In all these conditions (as below), the cornea which is the clear portion in the front of the eye is affected.

The light passes through the cornea, lens and falls on the back of the eye ( retina), where an image is created, sent to the brain where it is reversed, and this is what we ‘see.’ Each of these parts have to be in perfect condition in order to produce this proper sight. Errors of refraction fall into three main categories.

  1. Nearsightedness: There is difficulty in seeing far off objects, so road signs and boards are difficult to follow. Seeing objects that are closer is not affected. Most important cause is excessive staring into computer monitors.
  2. Farsightedness: The person has difficulty seeing things that are nearby and has to hold them at a distance for clarity.
  3. Astigmatism: Light rays merge to focus on multiple points either in front of or behind the retina. Normally, however, they should focus on a single point on the retina. There could be blurred vision, squinting, and eye strain.

What is done?

During the laser surgical procedure, ultraviolet laser beam is directed at the cornea. It is reshaped - made thinner in nearsightedness, elongated in farsightedness, and restoring the normal shape in astigmatism. This ensures that light is focused properly on the retina, producing sharp images and restoring vision.

Benefits:

  1. Success rate as high as 96% - most patients no longer need the glasses or contacts they were using earlier
  2. Minimal pain
  3. Immediate correction of vision
  4. No stitches required
  5. No Visible Scar

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Hello lybrate-user, First thing to be done in such cases is to immediately wash the eyes with running water thoroughly. That will wash off most of the spray from the eyes. Use lubricating eye drops 4 times a day. Cold compresses can be applied on closed eyes for soothing effect. In case of severe burning sensation, pain or redness, consult an eye doctor.

Hello Mr. lybrate-user, The most focussed solution for your condition is regular follow up with your eye doctor. Get your IOP tested every 2-3 months and visual field testing every 6 months. Also you need to avoid factors that worsen nerve damage associated with glaucoma, for example smoking, high blood pressure and stress. Treatment of glaucoma is lifelong and there is no alternative to regular follow up.

Hi I am Female 34 years old, suffering from papilledema as per MRI Report and doctor is suggesting me to be admitted in hospital for 2-3 days. They will release the pressure from brain's vain? They are not giving any medicine. Please suggest, is this the only process of treatment?

Hello lybrate-user, Papilledema is itself not a disease, it just means that there is increased fluid pressure around the brain. Releasing the pressure by spinal tap (lumbar puncture) is only a temporary solution. The treatment should be aimed at treating the underlying cause which increased the pressure in first place. Common causes include haemorrhage or tumours, which need neurosurgery and other causes include hydrocephalus, which needs stent placement (called VP shunt). I can guide you better if you share your MRI and other reports with me in private consultation. Regards.

Hello lybrate-user, The symptoms you have described certainly point towards a neurological problem. Repeated vomiting is often caused by increased pressure around the brain (Medical term- Intracranial Pressure) and leads to 6th nerve palsy, which means squinting of one or both eyes towards the nose. Patching is done so that child does not suffer from double vision. Spectacles have no role in this. In most conditions, These nerve palsies recover spontaneously in few months without squint surgery. However, you need to keep a close watch on the child's general condition. In case of any abnormal behaviour, consult a neurologist/ pediatric neurologist. Feel free to contact me in case of any doubt. I would like to see the child's photograph before and after developing the squint to guide you better.

Hello lybrate-user, It is very difficult to pinpoint the cause of your headache based on the limited information you have provided. However, the common causes of early morning head pain are Sinusitis, Inadequate/ Improper sleep (Sleep Apnea), Cervical pain or Spectacle power. Kindly consult a Physician and an eye specialist to evaluate for these conditions. Let me know in case you have any queries.

Hi, My elder brother woke up this morning and he looked into the mirror. He found that his both eyelid were swollen. He washed his face but it doesn't make any difference. After 5 hours, the swelling on his eyelids reduced a bit but his upper lip got swollen up. Help my brother ASAP.

Hi lybrate-user, This seems to be a severe case of allergy, probably due to some food item. Get it checked by a physician at the earliest to start treatment. The eyes should also get better with antiallergic tablets; if not, then visit an eye doctor. Contact me in case you need further guidance. Regards.
