What is it?
Diabetic retinopathy is the eye disorder seen in people suffering from Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes. The condition shows up with mild to moderate symptoms. It either occurs due to the blood vessels bulging, protruding and leaking into the retina of the eye or due to vitreous fluid leaks into the eye due to blood vessel ruptures. The condition can lead to fluctuating vision, blurred vision, double vision and even blindness if left untreated. Treatment modalities range from monitoring blood sugar levels to anti-VEGF drugs and surgery.
