Diabetic Retinopathy
Diabetic Retinopathy is a condition occurring in persons with diabetes which causes progressive damage to the retina, the light sensitive lining at the back of the eye. Diabetic retinopathy results from damage to the tiny blood vessels that nourish the retina causing them to leak blood and other fluids. This can cause swelling of retinal tissue and clouding of vision.
Diabetic Retinopathy is a serious, sight-threatening complication of diabetes. Often there are no visual symptoms in the early stages of diabetic retinopathy.

The blurring of distance vision as a result of lens swelling will subside once the blood sugar levels are brought under control. However, If left untreated, diabetic retinopathy can cause blindness.

Early detection and treatment can limit the potential for significant vision loss from diabetic retinopathy.

Symptoms of diabetic retinopathy may include:
» Seeing spots or floaters in your field of vision
» Blurred vision
» Having a dark or empty spot in the center of your vision
» Difficulty seeing well at night

If you are a diabetic, you can help prevent or slow the development of diabetic retinopathy by taking your prescribed medication, watching your diet, exercising daily, controlling high blood pressure and avoiding alcohol and smoking.
