Can a person with diabetes prevent eye problems occurring?

Answer: 

There's a good reason to believe that many visual problems stemming from diabetes can be prevented.

Current knowledge suggests that maintaining a good diet and following your GP's treatment program will lower any risks, but you shouldn't change your diet or take supplements without consulting your doctor first as this can affect your insulin dosage requirements.
