Diabetic retinopathy is a serious sight-threatening complication of diabetes. Diabetes interferes with the body's ability to use and store sugar (glucose). The disease is characterized by too much sugar in the blood, which can cause damage throughout the body, including the eyes.

This causes the retinal tissue to swell, resulting in cloudy or blurred vision.

If experiencing any signs or symptoms associated with macular degeneration, contact one of our doctors immediately for a complete evaluation.
