In brief: Diabetes and eye

Diabetic retinopathy is a change that occurs to the retina in patients with diabetes.
Diabetes itself can cause bleeding, swelling, and formation of scar tissue in the retina. In addition, it can also cause the growth of new blood vessels which can bleed on the retina or in the eye. It is prudent to see a retina specialist if diagnosed with diabetic retinopathy.
