    Dr William White, an optometrist with Baylor Scott & White Health, said: “We can see changes in the eyes due to vascular conditions caused by diabetes or hypertension.

    “The blood vessels in the retina can become a little more stiff and hardened.

    “They’ll push on each other and cross, like two hoses in a confined space.

    “When it gets really bad, we’ll see some of the blood vessels start to leak, we’ll see haemorrhaging and that can cause a whole range of vision issues.”
