Diabetes Retinopathy
Some effects
of diabetes are hard to see. Untill it's too late.

Visual Impairment can be a long-term complication of diabetes.

Diabetic Retinopathy covers all retinovascular effects of diabetes, with some retinal changes even leading to blindness. Its incidence is higher in those with a diabetic history of over 15 years. Both eyes can get affected, with equal severity. The intensity, of course, can vary from a mild form of retinopathy through different stages to diabetic maculopathy which can be responsible for up 90% of visual loss in such cases. May lead to retinal traction distortion or even detachment.

Diagnosis ::
Standard test of vision.

Treatment ::
Early identification is important to stop or slow down progress. Include diabetic control, drugs and various procedures. Surgery in advanced cases. Photocoagulation treatment is the only clinically proven and successful mode of therapy.

Management ::
A combined physician-opthalmologist clinic provides the opportunity for the patient to discuss the visual problems. It also helps doctors to plan the management jointly. Diabetes control can minimize the severity, so patients should know the treatment options and risks involved in not adhering to the treatment regimen. For details, consult your doctor.
