Diabetic retinopathy: Causes, symptoms, and treatments

Diabetic retinopathy destructs the blood vessels within the retinal tissue, causing them to leak fluid and distort vision. Diabetic retinopathy typically starts without any noticeable change in vision. Treating DR depends on many factors, including the severity and type of DR, and how the person with DR has responded to previous treatments. However, patients with diabetes who successfully maintain their blood sugar levels will help to prevent the onset of a severe form of DR.
