Do you have Diabetes melitus?
Do you have blurring of vision?
How long is your DM?
Is your sugar fluctuating frequently?
Do you have sudden loss of vision?
Do you have diabetes during pregnancy?
Are you taking Insulin regularly?
If answer of above questions is YES then you must visit eye doctor ( Ophthalmologist ) on urgent basis.
Blurred vision is a common sign of diabetes that isn’t under control. When blood sugar levels are high for a long time, body water is pulled into the lens, causing it to swell. It will take about six weeks, after getting blood sugar levels closer to normal, for the swelling to go away completely.
Diabetic retinopathy affects blood vessels in the light-sensitive tissue called the retina that lines the back of the eye. It is the most common cause of vision loss among people with diabetes and the leading cause of vision impairment and blindness among working-age adults. Diabetic macular edema (DME). Told by Ophthalmologist iCare clinic Pashan Pune.
In the initial stages of diabetic retinopathy, patients are generally asymptomatic, but in more advanced stages of the disease patients may experience symptoms that include floaters, distortion, and/or blurred vision. Microaneurysms are the earliest clinical sign of diabetic retinopathy.
Advanced stages of diabetic retinopathy needs surgical treatment.
Regular retinal examination is MUST as told by Consultant ophthalmologist iCare Clinic Pashan Pune.
