Read about the clinical details of Diabetic Retinopathy
Diabetic Retinopathy is a diabetes complication that affects the eyes. At first, there may be mild to no symptoms, but it can eventually cause blindness. Anyone with either type 1 or 2 diabetes is at risk. The longer you have diabetes and the less controlled your blood sugar is, the higher your risk is. There are very few symptoms in the early stages, but it progresses, you may see worsened vision in both eyes. There are two main types of diabetic retinopathy, early and advanced. Early is also referred to as non-proliferative, and advanced is known as proliferative.
