What is Diabetic Retinopathy?
Diabetic retinopathy is a diabetes complication that affects eyes. It’s caused by damage to the blood vessels of the light-sensitive tissue at the back of the eye (retina).
At first, diabetic retinopathy may cause no symptoms or only mild vision problems. Eventually, it can cause blindness. The longer you have diabetes and the less controlled your blood sugar is, the more likely you are to develop this eye complication.
