Diabetes also can cause leaking of blood vessels in the eyes, which leads to scarring and loss of vision.

Retinal damage, particularly leaky blood vessels in the retina, can be treated to avoid major vision loss.
Diabetics often have fluctuations in their vision due to their sugar level. Uncontrolled diabetes can cause a change in eyeglass prescription.
