Diabetes is a medical condition that affects one’s lifestyle in a wide variety of ways, including the eyes. The diabetic retinopathy is in fact one of the leading causes of blindness in the United States. If left untreated, patients will experience an unnecessary loss of vision. The degenerative condition can develop without any noticeable visions loss or pain. Early detection of this disease can help prevent significant damage.
