Diabetic Retinopathy is a condition that affects people with diabetes, causing damage to the blood vessels in the retina. Over time, high blood sugar levels can cause these blood vessels to become weak, leading to bleeding and the growth of abnormal blood vessels. This can cause vision loss or even blindness if left untreated. Common symptoms of Diabetic Retinopathy include:
If you have diabetes, it's important to have regular eye exams to detect Diabetic Retinopathy early. Early detection and treatment can help to prevent vision loss and other complications.
At our optometry practice in League City, TX, we offer a range of treatments for Diabetic Retinopathy, depending on the severity and progression of the condition. These may include:
Laser treatment: Laser treatment can be used to seal leaking blood vessels or to shrink abnormal blood vessels in the retina.
Vitrectomy: If bleeding inside the eye is severe, your optometrist may recommend a surgical procedure called vitrectomy to remove blood and scar tissue from the eye.
Injections: Anti-VEGF injections can be used to prevent the growth of abnormal blood vessels in the retina.
