Diabetic Retinopathy

more about Diabetic Retinopathy

  • The retina is located in the back of the eye, the area where images are projected.  It functions like the film in a camera.
  • Diabetes can cause bleeding, areas of swelling, damage to blood vessels, abnormal blood vessel formation, and tissue damage to the retina.  All diabetics are at risk for this complication, and need monitoring as described below.

  • Laser treatment done by an ophthalmologist or retina specialist is very effective for treating diabetic retinopathy once it occurs.

  • Diabetic retinopathy can lead to blindness, especially if left untreated.

  • Properly controlled blood sugars decrease the risk of diabetic retinopathy.
  • An examination of the eyes by an ophthalmologist should be done yearly.
