Help and frequently asked questions

What are the visual symptoms of diabetic retinopathy?

Answer: 

Not all diabetics have visual problems, but as their risks are increased, regular eye examinations are important.

The early stages of retinopathy might not show any symptoms, but an optometrist can detect any changes so that treatment can be given as soon as the problem arises.

Occasionally symptoms may occur before the problem has been detected, such as blurred vision and vision loss, usually in both eyes but sometimes affecting one eye more than the other.
