Overview

Diabetic retinopathy is a diabetes complication that effects eyes. This is caused by damage to the blood vessels of the light sensitive tissue in retina (at the back of the eye).

Diabetic retinopathy can develop in anyone who has type 1 or type 2 diabetes.

This eye complication more likely develops in those whose blood sugar is less controlled and suffering from diabetes from a long period of time.

Diabetic retinopathy usually effects both eyes of the patient.

There are two types of Diabetic Retinopathy:

EARLY DIABETIC RETINOPATHY: This type of diabetic retinopathy is also known as nonproliferative diabetic retinopathy (NPDR), in which new blood vessels aren’t grows (proliferating). In NPDR, the walls of the blood vessels in retina weaken. Tiny bulges protrude from the vessel walls of the smaller vessels, sometimes leaking fluid and blood in the retina.

ADVANCED DIABETIC RETINOPATHY: This type of diabetic retinopathy is also known as proliferative diabetic retinopathy, in which damaged blood vessels close off, causing the growth of new abnormal blood vessels in retina, and leak into the clear, jelly like substance that fills the centre of the eye.

  • Spots or dark strings floating in vision (floaters)
  • Blurred vision
