Some of the sign and symptoms of diabetic retinopathy are
– Blurred vision
– Floaters and spots
– Sudden loss of vision
Diabetic patients require routine examination of the eye to
detect any diabetic eye changes. The earlier diabetic
retinopathy is caught, the better the prognosis. Diabetic
retinopathy is monitored by testing such as flourescein
angiography, retinal photography and ocular tomography.
The methods of treatment for diabetic eye disease include
laser surgery and vitrectomy (blood is removed along with the
vitreous gel of the eye). If retinal detachment occurs, that is
repaired surgically.
