Diabetic retinopathy is a diabetic eye problem.
Blood vessel damage on the eye is the cause of diabetic retinopathy. Poor blood sugar management is also a risk factor.
Floaters, blurriness, dark patches of vision and difficulties detecting colors are all early signs. It is possible to become blind.
Diabetes management may be used to treat mild instances. Advanced situations may need surgery or laser therapy.
The blood vessels are damaged. Diabetic retinopathy may be present with no symptoms or just minor visual abnormalities at first.
