It is a leading cause of blindness in American adults.Your retina is the light-sensitive tissue at the back of your eye. You need a healthy retina to see clearly. Diabetic retinopathy damages the tiny blood vessels inside your retina.You may not notice it at first. Symptoms can includeBlurry or double visionRings, flashing lights, or blank spotsDark or floating spotsPain or pressure in one or both of your eyesTrouble seeing things out of the corners of your eyesTreatment often includes laser treatment or surgery, with follow-up care.Two other eye problems can happen to people with diabetes. A cataract is a cloud over the lens of your eye. Surgery helps you see clearly again. Glaucoma happens when pressure builds up in the eye, damaging the main nerve. Eye drops or surgery can help.If you have diabetes, you should have a complete eye exam every year. Finding and treating problems early may save your vision.
