Diabetic Retinopathy

Your doctor of optometry can be the first health care professional to discover diabetes, high blood pressure, or other signs of systemic diseases that also affect your eyes.

What is Diabetic Retinopathy?

In its earliest stages, this disease is called background diabetic retinopathy. It is typified by small dot and blot-like hemorrhages, and other evidence of leakage of blood vessels into the retina.
