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
