Diabetic Retinopathy

Diabetic Retinopathy is a condition occurring in persons with diabetes, which causes progressive damage to the retina, the light sensitive lining at the back of the eye. It is a serious sight-threatening complication of diabetes.

Often there are no visual symptoms in the early stages of diabetic retinopathy. That is why the American Optometric Association recommends that everyone with diabetes have a comprehensive dilated eye examination once a year or more often if your doctor recommends. Early detection and treatment can limit the potential for significant vision loss from diabetic retinopathy.
