Diabetes-Related Eye Problems.
Diabetic retinopathy, is retinopathy ( damage to the retina) caused by complications of diabetes, which can ultimately lead to blindness. It's an optical manifestation of diabetes, a systemic complaint, which affects up to 80 percent of all patients who have had diabetes for 10 years or further. Despite these intimidating statistics, study indicates that at least 90 of these new cases could be reduced if there was proper and vigilant treatment and monitoring of the eyes. The longer a person has diabetes, the advanced his or her chances of developing diabetic retinopathy.
Each year, diabetic retinopathy accounts for 40 of all new cases of blindness. It's also the leading cause of blindness for people aged 20 to 64 years.

What causes diabetic retinopathy?
Chronically high blood sugar from diabetes is associated with damage to the tiny blood vessels in the retina, leading to diabetic retinopathy. The retina detects light and converts it to signals sent through the optical nerve to the brain. Diabetic retinopathy can beget blood vessels in the retina to leak fluid or hemorrhage (bleed), distorting vision.
