Diabetic Retinopathy is a condition that can affect patients with diabetes. Diabetes is the number one cause of blindness in the United States. It causes progressive damage to the retina, the light-sensitive lining in the back of the eye.

Diabetes interferes with the body’s ability to use and store sugar (glucose). This disease causes too much sugar in the blood, which can cause damage throughout the body, including the eyes.
