Diabetic Retinopathy
Diabetic Retinopathy is a pathological condition which produces a series of steadily advancing retinal changes in patients with diabetes mellitus. Early stages of retinopathy may produce leaking blood vessels and swelling of the retina.  Advanced stages may include the growth of abnormal blood vessels, which may damage the eye and lead to glaucoma, retinal detachment or other sight-threatening conditions.

Patients may experience blurred vision or have no symptoms whatsoever as the disease progresses. Treatment options include laser to reduce swelling and shrink the abnormal vessels.
