What are symptoms of diabetic retinopathy?
In many cases, patients feeel little or no symptoms in the beginning stages of diabetic retinopathy. As it progresses, however, patients report experiencing blurry or double vision, dark spots or blind spots in their vision, dark strings floating in their visual field, and general vision loss. If you have diabetes, it’s important to maintain a regular eye care regimen, including eye exams at least once a year. This is true even if you think your eyes and vision are fine. Developing diabetes while pregnant can also increase your chances of getting diabetic retinopathy. Want to know more about diabetic retinopathy and how we can help you deal with it?
