Diabetic retinopathy is a complication of diabetes that affects the eyes. It's caused by damage to the blood vessels of the light-sensitive tissue at the back of the eye (retina).
Diabetic retinopathy may cause no apparent symptoms or only mild vision problems at first. However if left untreated, it can eventually lead to blindness.
Diabetic retinopathy can develop in anyone who has type 1 diabetes or type 2 diabetes. The longer you have diabetes, and the less controlled your blood sugar is, the more likely you are to develop diabetic retinopathy.
At Hyderabad Diabetes Centre, we have a state of the art facility to detect early signs of retinopathy. Get your eyes checked by our experts at the earliest to avoid vision problems later.
