How does diabetes affect the retina?

Patients with diabetes are more likely to develop eye problems such as cataracts and glaucoma, but the disease’s affect on the retina is the main threat to vision. Most patients develop diabetic changes in the retina after approximately 20 years. The effect of diabetes on the eye is called diabetic retinopathy.  Over time, diabetes affects the circulatory system of the retina. The earliest phase of the disease is known as background diabetic retinopathy. In this phase, the arteries in the retina become weakened and leak, forming small, dot-like hemorrhages. These leaking vessels often lead to swelling or edema in the retina and decreased vision.

 


Galucoma

Signs and Symptoms

The affect of diabetic retinopathy on vision varies widely, depending on the stage of the disease.  Some common symptoms of diabetic retinopathy are listed below, however, diabetes may cause other eye symptoms.

  • Blurred vision (this is often linked to blood sugar levels
  • Floaters and flashes
  • Sudden loss of vision 

Treatment

Diabetic retinopathy is treated in many ways depending on the stage of the disease and the specific problem that requires attention.  The retinal surgeon relies on several tests to monitor the progression of the disease and to make decisions for the appropriate treatment.  These include: fluorescein angiography, retinal photography, and ultrasound imaging of the eye.
