I have just been diagnosed with diabetes, does this mean that I will go blind?

Answer: 

Being diagnosed with diabetes doesn't necessarily mean you'll be affected by eye problems, though it does mean there's a greater risk.

As a result, if you're diagnosed with diabetes, it's recommended that you visit your optician regularly or as soon as you notice any changes in your vision.
