DIABETIC RETINOPATHY - ARE YOU AT RISK?
Diabetic retinopathy, the most common diabetic eye disease, occurs when there are changes in the blood vessels in the retina. Sometimes these vessels can swell and leak fluid, or even become completely clogged. In other cases, new abnormal blood vessels grow on the surface of the retina. Diabetic retinopathy generally affects both eyes. People with diabetic retinopathy are often unaware of changes in their vision during the early stages of the disease. But as it progresses, diabetic retinopathy usually causes vision loss that in many cases cannot be reversed. It can also cause other ocular alterations such as neovascular glaucoma, traction retinal detachment, vitreous hemorrhage, etc. An annual examination is recommended to rule out any ocular pathology, remember that if you are diabetic your risk of suffering from this disease is quite significant.
