This month we are focusing on seniors with vision loss.
Last week we found out that the four main causes of vision loss in seniors are: Diabetic Retinopathy, Glaucoma, Cataracts, and Macular Degeneration.
Today we will talk about diabetes as a cause of vision loss in seniors.
Not everyone who develops diabetes will have vision loss. Only a small percentage of people with diabetes goes on to have diabetic retinopathy. But since diabetes is a preventable disease, this cause of vision loss can be eliminated.
