Diabetic Retinopathy

Accompanying scar tissue can contract and cause retinal detachment—the pulling away of the retina from underlying tissue, like wallpaper peeling away from a wall. Studies such as the Diabetes Control and Complications Trial have shown that controlling diabetes slows the onset and worsening of diabetic retinopathy. DCCT study participants who kept their blood glucose level as close to normal were significantly less likely than those without optimal glucose control to develop diabetic retinopathy, as well as kidney and nerve diseases. There are other trials which have shown that controlling elevated blood pressure and cholesterol can reduce the risk of vision loss among people with diabetes. Treatment for diabetic retinopathy is delayed until it starts to progress to PDR. When diabetic retinopathy becomes more severe comprehensive eye exams are needed. People with severe diabetic retinopathy will have high risk of developing PDR and may need a comprehensive dilated eye exam as often as every3 to 6 months.
