Diabetic Retinopathy

Diabetic Retinopathy

People with diabetes are more at risk of developing eye conditions such as cataracts and glaucoma, and most significantly, Diabetic Retinopathy. This occurs when diabetes causes damage to the fine blood vessels in the retina. If left undetected and untreated, Diabetic Retinopathy can cause serious eye damage including blurred vision and even blindness.

Treatment

At present there is no cure for diabetic retinopathy, but early detection and optimal management can prevent up to 98% of vision loss. The good news is that while the risk of developing retinopathy is present, maintaining your blood sugar levels within the recommended range, adopting a healthy lifestyle and having your eyes tested regularly can reduce your risk by up to 58%.

Be sure to have your eyes tested at least every 1 – 2 years.
