    Yeah, this is totally right. An eye exam can actually test if you have got diabetes or not. Nowadays there are a lot of people who are suffering from diabetes without even knowing this. And they also don' t know how to detect this. That is why eye exams are so popular now. As you may know, the symptoms of diabetes are also not so obvious because you can easily misunderstand them just as some common eye diseases. You know, the symptoms such as blurry vision, itchy eyes, red eyes and sometimew along with watery eyes. It is hard to tell, so it is better for you to accept an eye exam.

    It could be. It is said that the doctors will use a kind of special eye drops to test this. If you have diabetes, your pupils will have some special changes in a few min so you really need to be careful. However, if you go to your eye doctor, I am sure your doctor will tell you the detailed situation.
