One of the risk factors for developing diabetic eye disease is simply the length of time that an individual has had diabetes.

But there’s still a lot you can do: the blood sugar level being nicely controlled will afford you a much better prognosis. Also, there’s a correlation with regards to blood pressure: people with diabetes who might also have blood pressure issues will do much better if not just their blood sugar is controlled but also their blood pressure. A nice diet and exercise regimen and following up with some diligence with your primary care doctor will help people with diabetes try to avoid diabetic eye disease.
