Diabetic Retinopathy Treatment in Metairie, LA

What is diabetic retinopathy?

It is well known that diabetes is caused by high blood sugar, and uncontrolled diabetes can cause vision problems. This is because high sugar content in the blood weakens blood vessels to the retina. Left untreated, diabetic retinopathy can progress to diabetic macular edema and is associated with retinal tears and retinal detachment.

When should I see a specialist?

If you are diabetic and are experiencing blurred vision, loss of vision, floaters, or dark spots in one or both eyes, you will need to see a retina specialist right away. Treatment can help reduce your risk of long-term damage and blindness.
