This is an excerpt of a video sponsored by EyeSmart and the American Academy of Ophthalmology, in which Chicago Bears center Roberta Garza highlights the important steps people can take to protect their vision. Garza's grandfather became blind because of his diabetes, a disease that affects the health and vision of millions of Americans. Garza is at greater risk because of his ethnicity, but there are healthy habits people can follow to reduce their risk of diabetes and vision loss.
The video discusses diabetic eye disease in depth and how regular eye exams and proper treatment from an ophthalmologist can help prevent vision loss.
