Symptoms of Diabetic Retinopathy

Most of the time, diabetic retinopathy has no symptoms until major bleeding occurs in the eye. Therefore, everyone with diabetes should have regular eye exams.

Symptoms of non-proliferative diabetic retinopathy include-

► Blurred vision

► Gradual vision loss.

Symptoms of proliferative diabetic retinopathy symptoms include-

► Floaters- Floaters are dark spots that appear to float in the vision.



► Vision loss- In some cases, the vision loss is so severe that a person can only distinguish light from dark. Some people have trouble seeing at night.

► Hemorrhage in the eye- Heavy bleeding in the eye may occur during sleep
