Track: Diabetic Retinopathy

Diabetic Retinopathy


Diabetic retinopathy is caused by damage to the blood vessels within the tissue at the rear of the attention (retina). Poorly controlled blood glucose may be a risk factor. Early symptoms are blurriness, floaters, dark areas of vision and difficulty perceiving colours. Blindness can occur. Mild cases could also be treated with careful diabetes management. Advanced cases may require laser treatment or surgery.
