You are already on the best and maximum possible treatments for the high sugars, however diet & lifestyle modification will be required to strictly control the glucose, otherwise the problem may get worse.

Diabetic eye disease is a group of eye conditions that can affect people with diabetes. 

  • Diabetic retinopathy affects blood vessels in the light-sensitive tissue called the retina that lines the back of the eye. It is the most common cause of vision loss among people with diabetes and the leading cause of vision impairment and blindness among 
    working-age adults. 
  • Diabetic macular edema (DME). A consequence of diabetic retinopathy, DME is swelling in an area of the retina called the macula.
