What is diabetic eye disease?

Answer: 

This is a group of eye problems that occur in those who have had diabetes for a number of years.

They include glaucoma, cataracts and diabetic retinopathy.

However, while diabetic retinopathy affects only diabetics, both glaucoma and cataracts can affect people who do not have diabetes.
