Diabetic Retinopathy

Diabetic Retinopathy is yet another problem faced with those people who have diabetes. Diabetes damages tiny blood vessels inside the retina causing degradation. As diabetic retinopathy becomes more severe, new blood vessels begin to form on the retina that could break and cause severe vision loss. The disease is usually un-noticed, but as more and more blood vessels are damaged and new ones are formed, the higher the chances of vision loss. It is recommended that people with diabetes get a thorough eye examination once a year.
