It certainly can, if you don't keep it under control.

It can if you don't take care of the diabetes. If sugar levels are controlled with diet, exercise, and medication, then things like blindness and some of the other worse consequences of diabetes will usually be avoided. If sugar levels are ignored and the diabetic has poor habits and poor management of their sugar levels, then blindness is one of the real possibilities for them.


Yes, it definitely can


Absolutely yes. Diabetes is one of the main causes of total blindness.
