Diabetic Retinopathy

How can I manage my Diabetic Retinopathy?

If you have diabetes, the tiny blood vessels (capillaries) in the back of your eye can deteriorate and leak fluid into and under the retina. This causes the retina to swell, which may blur or distort your vision. Or you may develop new, abnormal capillaries that break and bleed. This also worsens your vision.

As Ophthalmologists, we treat Diabetic Retinopathy at our Venice and Sarasota offices.
