Signs of Vision Problems

If you have diabetes and develop any of the following symptoms, check in with an eye care professional:

  • Your vision becomes blurry.
  • You have trouble reading signs or books.
  • You see double.
  • One or both of your eyes hurt.
  • Your eyes get red and stay that way.
  • You feel pressure in your eye.
  • You see spots or floaters.
  • Straight lines do not look straight.
  • You can't see things at the sides as you used to.

Retinopathy can develop without symptoms—which is why regular exams are important.
