    Well, generally speaking, it is common to have this kind of disease. And it can also lead to some side effects. For example, people with this disease will have retinopathy, cataracts, and glaucoma. And you should know that retinopathy is the most common disease which is related to diabetes. Also, it can lead to floaters in your eyes and that will make you feel annoying. By the way, it can lead to weaker blood vessels and have a high potential for problems later. Finally, blurred vision and floating spots will often occur. So just pay more attention to it. In my opinion, you should go and see a doctor, and have a exam. There is no home remedy for you to do.
