    Well, yes, dry eyes can be a sign of diabetes. Generally speaking, when you suffer diabetes, cataracts, and glaucoma may occur, you may get dry eyes. On the other hand, it can lead to weaker blood vessels. And then the disorders in your eyes may occur. In this way, it can lead to blurred vision and floating spots. Even dry eyes can be caused. Of course, there are also some other factors which can lead to dry eyes, such as eye strain, eye infection. Anyway, just be careful about it.
