Diabetes Ophthalmology

Diabetic retinopathy is due to damage to blood vessels in the tissue of the retina. Poor blood sugar control is one of the risk factors. Blood vessels may swell and leak fluid and abnormal development of new blood vessels on the surface of the retina is observed. The accompanying scar tissue may contract and detach from the retina.

Symptoms in the initial stages include blurring, floaters, dark areas of vision, and difficulty perceiving colors. Diabetic retinopathy is incurable but can be treated with laser treatments and surgical removal of the vitreous gel (vitrectomy) for good vision.
