    Eye Problems and Diabetes

    Get Eye Exams

    A thorough eye exam every year can help find problems early on when they're easier to treat. That could save your vision.

    If you're thinking about having a baby, you should get an eye exam before you get pregnant to avoid problems. Check with your eye doctor about getting exams during your pregnancy, too.

    Emergency Symptoms

    Call your doctor if you see:

    • Black spots in your vision
    • Flashes of light
    • "Holes" in your vision
    • Blurred vision
