Diabetic Retinopathy

Diabetic retinopathy is a condition in the back of the eye, caused by diabetes which can lead to a significant loss of vision.

It is the leading cause of blindness in the 20-64 year age group, and is one of the most frequent causes of retinal blindness in the world. About 25% of diabetics have some form of diabetic retinopathy, and 5% have severe disease. The incidence of diabetic retinopathy can depend on how long you have had diabetes. Blood vessels in the back of the eye can start to leak, and early detection of this condition is vital.

Regular eye examinations for diabetics are mandatory for early detection of the leaky retinal blood vessels. Laser is sometimes used to treat these abnormal blood vessels and sometimes surgery is required to clear the eye of blood left by the disease.

If you or someone you know has diabetes, make sure they get their eyes examined by an ophthalmologist regularly.
