Eye Health


Monitoring Blood Glucose (Blood Sugar)

When blood glucose is too high, it can affect the shape of the eye’s lens, causing blurry vision, which goes back to normal after blood glucose stabilizes. High blood glucose can also damage the blood vessels in the eyes. Managing your blood glucose helps prevent these problems.

Monitoring Blood Pressure and Cholesterol

High blood pressure and high cholesterol can increase risk for eye disease and vision loss. Managing both will not only help the eyes but overall health as well.

Making Healthy Lifestyle Choices

Regular exercise has phenomenal health benefits—it can help manage diabetes and improve eye health. Smoking also increases the risk of diabetic retinopathy and other eye conditions, but reduce that risk by quitting smoking.
