Diabetic Retinopathy

Do you have Diabetes? Make sure you are checked for: Diabetic Retinopathy

Dec 10 2014 By Dr. Wafaa - Specialist Ophthalmologist

Diabetic retinopathy is a common complication of diabetes. It occurs when high blood sugar levels damage the cells at the back of the eye, known as the retina

Good control of blood sugar (glucose) and blood pressure slows down the progression of retinopathy.

Facts of Diabetic Retinopathy:

  • If left untreated diabetic retinopathy can lead to visual loss or even blindness
  • People with diabetes can also develop other eye diseases like cataracts and glaucoma
  • Everyone with diabetes over the age of 12 should have their eyes checked at least once a year by a Specialist Ophthalmologist

Symptoms of diabetic retinopathy:

Most people with retinopathy (during initial stages) do not have any symptoms. You may not
realise that your retina is damaged until the later stages, when your vision becomes affected.

Possible symptoms of late-stage retinopathy include:

  • shapes floating in your field of vision (floaters)
  • blurred vision
  • reduced night vision
  • sudden blindness
