Introduction: Diabetic Lens Osmosis


Diabetic Lens Osmosis: Despite all the prominent material about diabetic retinopathy, there is actually a less harmful and common eyesight change resulting from diabetes. It is a short-term complication of high blood sugars and not a long-term complications like retinopathy. It is usually easily treated and curable.

This eye condition occurs when the occular lens fills with fluid, due to high blood sugars, and changes the way the lens refracts light. This occurs commonly at diagnosis in patients with high sugars (especially rapid-onset Type I diabetes diagnosis), and also occurs over the years if patients cannot control sugars, and blood sugars go too high.

Note that a similar change in the lens can also occur with very low blood sugars. This may explain some vision changes when people have hypo episodes.
