What are diabetic-related eye diseases?
Diabetes is a complex metabolic disease in which the body either can’t produce insulin, doesn’t produce enough insulin, or simply can’t use it efficiently. In diabetes, sugar levels build up in the blood if there is a lack of insulin to break it down. This is called hyperglycemia — which can negatively affect every part of your body including the eyes.
What are the symptoms of diabetic-related eye diseases?
What are the causes of diabetic-related eye diseases?
- Diabetic retinopathy
- Bleeding in the retina or leakage of serum
- Development of new, abnormal fragile blood vessels on the surface of the retina that bleed easily
- Diabetic macular edema
- Swelling of the macula in the retina due to leakage of fluid (The macula is the central sensitive area of the eye responsible for fine vision)
- Other common reasons
- Long-term diabetes
- Uncontrolled high blood pressure (hypertension) can add as a co-factor for hastening the disease process
- Uncontrolled blood sugar
How can diabetic-related eye diseases be treated?
Although most retinal disorders caused by diabetes can be managed by medical means, severe diabetic-related eye diseases are usually treated by laser, surgery, or vitrectomy procedure.
