Diabetic Retinopathy

Diabetic Retinopathy

Diabetic Retinopathy is the most common cause of vision loss among people with diabetes and a leading cause of vision impairment and blindness among working-age adults. Chronically high blood sugar from diabetes is associated with damage to the blood vessels in the retina, causing leakage of fluid or hemorrhaging and distorted vision. In its most advanced stage, new abnormal blood vessels proliferate on the surface of the retina, which can lead to retinal scarring and cell loss. 

Typical imaging modalities used when conducting clinical studies in diabetic eye conditions include Color Fundus Photography to document the changes in the retina; Fluorescein Angiography to identify the extent of any neovascularization or retinal ischaemia and to classify the stage of the disease advancement; and Optical Coherence Tomography to detect diabetic macular edema.
