In brief: Vision clouding

Frequently stemming from diabetes, peripheral retinopathy involves new fragile blood vessels that can begin to grow in the retina and into the vitreous humor.
(The gel-like fluid that fills the back of the eye). The new blood vessels are fragile and may leak blood into the vitreous humor, clouding vision.

In brief: Floaters

New floaters and or blurring of the vision.
You need regular dilated eye exams by your retina specialist even without new symptoms if you have this disease.
