Diabetes can manifest inside the eye and lead to significant problems. Diabetes may lead to structural changes within the blood vessels which lead to fluid leakage or bleeding within the eye. Diabetes may also lead to abnormal new blood vessels that can easily bleed or cause traction on the retina. Early detection is the key to preserving your vision. It is important for diabetics to keep regular follow-up for eye examinations. Treatments for diabetic eye disease include laser, vitrectomy, and intravitreal injections.
