Effective Treatment of Diabetic Retinopathy

Patients dealing with Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes may already have diabetic retinopathy but are not aware of it because in its early stages, this eye disease does not manifest any symptom. This is why it's important for diabetic patients to undergo a regular eye exam, at least once a year, to determine whether or not they have already developed diabetic retinopathy.

What Is Diabetic Retinopathy?

As mentioned above, diabetic retinopathy is an eye disease that develops in patients dealing with diabetes. This disease affects the retina, which is that part of the eye that helps you see clear images, fine print and details, and vivid colors. Basically, what happens is extremely high blood sugar levels cause retinal blood vessels to leak blood or fluid into the macula, which then causes blurred vision. The macula is the central part of the retina that allows you to see what is in front of you (central vision). Over time, abnormal blood vessels may grow, which may cause the patient to develop glaucoma. Briefly, glaucoma is an eye disease that may cause vision loss or blindness due to damage to the optic nerve. Here you can see that an unaddressed diabetic retinopathy condition may lead to complications that could increase your risk of going completely blind.

What are common symptoms of the disease?

As mentioned above, this disease has no symptoms in its early stages, which is why most diabetic patients are unaware they already have it. When the disease has progressed, you may notice some of these symptoms:
  • Blurred central vision
  • Floating spots (also called floaters) in your central vision
  • Your vision sometimes switches from being clear to blurry
  • You may notice empty or dark spots within your direct line of vision
  • Vision loss

Is There a Cure for This Eye Disease?

Conventional medicine offers no means to restore vision. And doctors say there is no cure for this diabetes complication. The best they can offer are treatments and medications to help the patient manage their diabetes and blood sugar levels in hopes of slowing down the progression of the disease or preventing it from further progressing. These treatments or therapies that are geared towards preventing the disease from further progressing may significantly reduce their risk of going completely blind, but whatever has been lost or damaged cannot be repaired or restored.
