According to the CDC, diabetes is the leading cause of blindness among adults aged 18-64. The most common diabetic eye disease is diabetic retinopathy. The condition occurs after consistently high blood sugar levels damage blood vessels in the retina, the light-sensing tissue that lines the back of the eye.
