Diabetes produces weakening of the blood vessel in the body. The tiny delicate retina blood vessels are particularly susceptible. This deterioration of retinal blood vessels, accompanied by structural changes in the retina may go through a series of changes may progress from one to the next.
A large variety of conditions can affect the vitreous and retina that lie on the back part of the eye that is not readily visible and thus neglected. Due to the ageing process, the vitreous can separate from the retina and get detached.
Also, diabetes which is considered a “global epidemic” is a prime reason for vision loss globally. Diabetic retinopathy is main cause of blindness associated with diabetes apart from other range of eye diseases. Approximately 1 in 10 will develop a vision threatening form of the disease but can be treated as well.
