When blood sugar is too high, the blood vessels in the retina of the eye can become blocked. If these blocked blood vessels become too large, they can leak fluid into the macula of the eye, causing edema. Due to the high amounts of sugar in the blood stream, diabetics (both Type 1 and 2) are at risk of developing Diabetic Macular Edema (DME). This serious eye condition can cause vision problems and even blindness.
