How Diabetes Affects the Eyes
(http://ow.ly/s2N730lbOl6)

The many small blood vessels in your eyes can become damaged due to chronically high blood sugar levels, otherwise known as diabetes. Cardiovascular and nerve damage is common among diabetics, and when it happens in the retina, it is referred to as condition known as diabetic retinopathy.

People with diabetes are also prone to developing other conditions known as diabetic macular edema, cataracts, and glaucoma. The best way to protect your eyes is to prevent conditions and diseases from happening in the first place — change your nutrition and exercise habits to manage your diabetes and protect your vision.

Keratoconus is a protrusion of the cornea, giving it a cone-like shape. If left untreated, it can cause blurry vision, sensitivity to light, vision distortions, astigmatism, and other problems. If you wear corrective lenses, you may notice frequent changes in your eye prescription strength.

There are special contact lenses and plastic rings that can help gradually give cornea a healthier, more normal shape. In some severe cases, you may need to receive a corneal transplant, which involves getting a new cornea from a donor.

Treatment Options for Double Vision
(http://ow.ly/qwH130lbOkU)

Double vision, as its name suggests, is a vision problem where a single object may appear in duplicates to the viewer. Double vision is typically caused by either a pre-existing eye condition like cataracts, or strabismus, or as the result of an injury, stroke, or diabetes.

Special prescription eyeglasses and contact lenses can help manage the symptoms of double vision, as well as eye exercises performed with the guidance of inexperienced optometrist. In some cases, even Botox injections may help.

An Introduction to Strabismus
(http://ow.ly/OjEp30lbOkS)

Strabismus is an eye condition where the eyes point in separate directions and the patient has difficulty focusing on a single object at a time. In some cases, the condition comes and goes, while for others it is constant.

Strabismus is often a side effect of conditions like cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, brain tumors, or another form of birth defect. Strabismus can be treated using special glasses and eyewear to help retrain eye muscles to work together.
