Diabetic Retinopathy Directory
Diabetic retinopathy is an eye condition that affects people with diabetes who have high blood glucose over a prolonged period of time. Too much blood sugar can destroy the blood vessels in the back of the eye, preventing the retina from receiving the proper amount of nutrients it needs to maintain vision. If left untreated, diabetes can cause a person to become blind. But with good blood sugar control, people with diabetes can reduce their risk of diabetic retinopathy.
