Your Vision on National Dessert Day

Unfortunately, simple carbs that are added to baked goods aren’t good for you. Your doctor, dentist, or optometrist will tell you that. So, on National Dessert Day, enjoy your favorites in moderation.

Sweets & Your Eyes

According to the Mayo Clinic, diabetic retinopathy is “a diabetes complication that affects eyes.” As the condition progresses, the symptoms may include:

  • Spots in your vision
  • Blurred vision
  • Fluctuating vision
  • Impaired color vision
  • Dark or empty areas in your vision
  • Vision loss

Sadly, this can affect both eyes.

Causes

Eating a lot of sugar can block tiny blood vessels to your retinas. Complications from this can lead to serious vision problems.

Prevention

So, what can you do? Get regular eye exams, take control of your blood sugar and blood pressure. If you have diabetes, reduce your risk by:

  • First, managing your diabetes
  • Second, monitoring your blood sugar level
  • Third, keeping your blood pressure and cholesterol under control.
  • Fourth, quit smoking.
  • Finally, pay attention to vision changes.
