Diabetic retinopathy

Diabetic retinopathy is an eye disease caused by diabetes in both T1 and T2. The small blood vessels of the retina at the back of the eye are affected and can cause severe vision loss.

Early diagnosis and treatment can prevent up to 98% of vision loss.

Symptoms: (these may not occur in the early stages so have regular check ups)

  • vision may become blurry
  • objects may float across your eyes and straight lines can appear wavy
  • it can become hard to see 

If you think you have any of these see an optometrist or ophthalmologist.

And remember - have regular eye tests - a medicare rebate is available for most visits.
