Diabetes Ophthalmology

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

Symptoms in initial stages include floaters, blurriness, dark areas of vision and difficulty perceiving colors. There is no cure for diabetic retinopathy but can be treated laser treatments for and surgical removal of vitreous gel (vitrectomy) for better vision.
