What is Diabetic Retinopathy

Diabetic Retinopathy

Your eyes like to stay in equilibrium with each other and the rest of your body. Unfortunately, diabetes has a way of disrupting this equilibrium and causing major and lasting impacts on your eyes.

Diabetic retinopathy is a side effect of diabetes that affects the blood vessels in the eye when chronically high amounts of blood sugar begin to clog or damage blood vessels within the eye’s retina.  Both type 1 and type 2 diabetics are at risk of diabetic retinopathy.

Immediate treatment is imperative to having long lasting vision. Dr. Powers and the Healthy Vision Institute creates customized treatments for each individual patient insuring the best individualized care.
