    Well, yes, diabetes can be serious and it will cause some side effects on eyes. Generally speaking, if you have got diabetes, retinopathy, which is the most common disease related to diabetes can occurs. And also, cataracts, and glaucoma can be possible too. By the way, it can lead to blurred vision and floating spots, eye floaters. On the other hand, glaucoma actually is related to a group of diseases and it can cause damage to the optic nerve as a result of increased pressure within the eye. Eye infection, injury, blocked blood vessels or inflammatory conditions of the eye can just lead to it. So just be careful about them.
