About Diabetic Retinopathy
Diabetic Retinopathy

Everyone with diabetes is at risk of developing diabetic eye disease. Most people consider sight to be their most precious sense so it is critical to be aware of the risk of diabetic eye disease and to understand how to prevent its onset. For those who already have diabetic eye disease, there are steps to take to reduce the risk of further vision loss.

Managing diabetes can be difficult. Living with diabetic retinopathy and the potential impact on vision can be challenging. However, most people with diabetic retinopathy should keep most, if not all vision, providing it is diagnosed early and all steps are taken to keep it under control.
