Diabetic Retinopathy 

Diabetic retinopathy is one of the most common complications of diabetes. It can develop in people with both type 1 and type 2 diabetes, and usually affects both eyes.
 

People with retinopathy have damaged leaky blood vessels in their retina. (The light-sensitive layer at the back of the eyes) This may cause acute and gradual vision loss.
 

If you have diabetes, it is recommended that you check your eyes once a year to monitor for diabetic eye disease.
