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.

Diabetic Retinopathy Symptoms

You may not experience any problems in the beginning. You may encounter the following symptoms when your disease worsens:

  • Spots or black threads appear in your peripheral vision (floaters).
  • Vision is blurry.
  • Vision changes throughout time.
  • Areas of your view that are dark or vacant.
  • Loss of vision.


Eyeglasses are an essential tool for reducing the visual issues caused by diabetic retinopathy.

Excessive sugar in your blood may clog retina blood vessels cutting off its blood supply over time.  As a consequence, the eye tries to regenerate new blood vessels. However, these new blood vessels do not form correctly and are prone to leaking.

A diabetic diet may aid vision loss, but it’s also essential to have regular eye exams.

Eye examinations may also aid in determining the origin of floaters, which are typical symptoms. It’s a crucial aspect of diabetes management. Residents of Fort Lauderdale and Wilton Manors have come to trust World Eyeglasses and our on-site laboratory for prompt and dependable service.
