Diabetes mellitus (DM) can cause diabetic retinopathy, leading to retinal haemorrhage, vitreous haemorrhage and retinal detachment. Depending on the duration and the age of onset of diabetes, the incidence of diabetic retinopathy varies from 20% to 55% in diabetic patients. Early diabetic retinopathy is asymptomatic.
Once diagnosed to have diabetes, patients should consult an eye doctor to have a thorough baseline assessment of their eyes. Regular follow-up eye examination every 6 months to 1 year is essential, depending on the severity of the diabetic eye diseases. We offer Comprehensive Eye Examination for Diabetic Patients.
