Dr. Pizio offers Tips on Diabetic Retinopathy Prevention in Our Latest Video
Diabetes afflicts hundreds of millions of people across the globe, and vision impairment is just one of the major consequences that can result from this serious condition. Diabetic retinopathy is a leading cause of blindness. It is a complication of diabetes that causes bleeding and leakage from blood vessels in the back of the eye, which can lead to severe vision impairment. The good news is: the progression of the disease can be significantly slowed and more serious stages of diabetic retinopathy can be prevented with early diagnosis and treatment.
In addition to regular eye exams, Dr. Helga F. Pizio here at New Eyes has some tips on how you can help prevent diabetic retinopathy from having life-altering effects on your vision.
