Diabetic Retinopathy: Can It Be Cured?

Posted on

Diabetic retinopathy is an eye condition caused mainly in patients with diabetes who have been suffering from this disease for a long time. It is caused by damage to the blood vessels in the tissue at the back of the eye (Retina). It is the leading cause of blindness in developed countries. One of the most common and major causes and risks of diabetic retinopathy is the long duration of diabetes. The small retinal blood vessels get blocked by the high concentration of sugar in the blood for a long time. In response to this, the eyes start to grow new blood vessels. But these new blood vessels are abnormal and fragile, and as a result, the blood leaks from them, causing diabetic retinopathy. However, it does not have any signs in the early stage but can only be detected by regular eye checkups. It can be treated by using different approaches if detected in time.
