Dan Howarth, Head of Care at Diabetes UK, said: “Diabetes can affect your eyes in many ways and, for some people, it can lead to diabetic retinopathy which, if not treated in time, can lead to sight loss. It’s why all people over the age of 12 with diabetes are invited to regular diabetic eye screenings and we urge everyone to make sure they attend these routine checks.

“Normal sight tests are important too, as they have sometimes been known to pick up undiagnosed diabetes. Blurred vision could be a sign of an underlying condition, and one of the possible causes could be diabetes.

“Good eye health is really important and, for this year’s Diabetes Week, we’re reminding people to be aware of all the signs and symptoms of undiagnosed diabetes, which include going to the toilet a lot, being really thirsty and feeling tired. If you feel very unwell or your symptoms have come on quickly seek an urgent appointment with your GP or call NHS 111.”
