diabetic retinopathy treatment

Diabetic Retinopathy is one of the most important causes of visual loss worldwide. In individuals with diabetes, eyes can get affected in various ways including having retinopathy, cataract and glaucoma. High blood sugars along with high blood pressure will damage the blood vessels of retina and lead to retinopathy. This is often a silent complication with no symptoms at initial stages. When symptoms appear the disease will be generally advanced and the treatment is difficult and the outcome will be poor. Hence screening for retinopathy forms the cornerstone of proper diabetes management. Do get your eyes tested today for diabetes eye disease.
