Symptoms & Diagnosis of Diabetic Retinopathy

Most people know that diabetes affects blood sugar levels, but very few understand the wider complications associated with the disease, which include issues affecting the eyes.

Without treatment, diabetic retinopathy can cause irreversible vision loss.


How Are Cataracts Treated?

Cataracts develop due to age or injury on the tissue making up the eye lens. The lens becomes cloudy when protein fibers in it start breaking down. Some hereditary disorders cause health problems that increase the risk of developing cataracts.
