Any vision related problem/s associated with diabetes is known as diabetic retinopathy. The earliest changes caused by diabetes are manifested in the form of non proliferative diabetic retinopathy. This is a condition characterised by insignificant damages caused in the blood vessels of the eye, which will eventually become more serious if not treated on time. Usually, non proliferative diabetic retinopathy will be asymptomatic. Patients suffering from the earliest stages of diabetic retinopathy will have a normal 20/20 vision.
Although, eye specific treatments for diabetic retinopathy are available, the main treatment must involve effective management of the underlying disease. The best way to approach it is to attempt strict control of blood sugar levels through effective medications or insulin shots.
