Diabetic Retinopathy and the troubles around.

Posted by Sharp Sight on February 9th, 2021

Diabetic Retinopathy is a type of eye disease which occurs as a side effect of diabetes. High Diabetes damages blood vessels of the retina, in the back part of your eyes which ultimately  leads to diabetic retinopathy. Diabetes also places you at risk of causing a cataract, glaucoma, and other eye problems. 

Diabetic Retinopathy is further divided into two stages: 

  1. This is the primary phase of the disease, this stage is called Nonproliferative. 

  2. The second stage is Proliferative, this is a more advanced/severe stage. 

Symptoms and causes of Diabetic Retinotherapy

Although in most cases, diabetic retinopathy shows no symptoms unless it does severe damage to the eye. Some little symptoms that may show up are: 

  • Blurred vision or slow vision loss over time

  • Shadows or missing areas of vision

  • Floaters 

  • Problem seeing at night

Now as we know the symptoms of Diabetic Retinopathy, let’s see some prominent causes of diabetic retinopathy: 

  • Suffering from diabetes for a longer period of time

  • Cataracts 

  • Glaucoma

  • Improper management of diabetes

Treatment for Diabetic Retinopathy

All forms of diabetic eye disease, if not controlled can potentially cause severe vision loss and blindness. Treatment for diabetic retinopathy includes a combination of the following:

  1. Strict BP, blood sugar, and cholesterol control

  2. Retinal laser

  3. Intravitreal injections of anti-VEGF and/ or steroids

  4. Vitreo-retinal surgery, if indicated

While treating diabetic retinopathy, there are two pertinent aspects, your retina specialist looks into: 

  1. Type of diabetes that has caused retinopathy.

  2. The extent of damage it has caused to your eyes.
