Eyes & National Kidney Month

Kidneys pain. Man holding his back. Medical concept.

Did you know that March is National Kidney Month? What does that have to do with Argus Dental & Vision? For one, diabetes and high blood pressure are two of the leading causes of chronic kidney disease.


Retinopathy is a condition “where the small blood vessels in the eyes become damaged as a result of hypertension or diabetes.” Diabetes elevates your blood glucose levels in the bloodstream which can damage the tiny blood vessels in your kidneys.

Diagnosing Future Eye Damage

Tell your optometrist right away if you notice any changes in your vision:

  • Blurry, double or cloudy vision
  • Pain or pressure in one or both eyes
  • Trouble seeing things out of the corner of your eyes
  • Floating or flashing lights
  • Dark spots
