Diabetic Retinopathy

What is Diabetic Retinopathy?

Diabetic retinopathy, the most common diabetic eye disease, is a leading cause of blindness in American adults. It is caused by changes in blood vessels of the retina.

People with both type 1 and type 2 diabetes are at risk. Between 40-45% of Americans diagnosed with diabetes have some stage of diabetic retinopathy. That is why everyone with diabetes should get a comprehensive dilated eye exam by an eye care professional at least once a year.

If you are diabetic, stay proactive with your eye health by having a comprehensive eye exam every year with one of our retina specialists. Call our Florence office at (843) 664-9393 or our Sumter office at (803) 775-1772 to schedule an appointment.
