Diabetic Retinopathy Clinical Trial
Diabetic retinopathy is the leading cause of blindness for all adults in the U.S. (WebMD). Diabetic retinopathy is an eye condition that affects the blood vessels in the retina. If your blood glucose level is too high for too long, the small blood vessels that keep your retina healthy can become blocked which can lead to vision changes or blindness. Some symptoms include:
- Loss of central vision, which is used when you read or drive
- Not being able to see colors
- Blurry vision
- Holes or black spots in your vision
- Floaters, or small spots in your vision caused by bleeding (WebMD).
