In brief: Diabetic Retinopathy

The entire clinical spectrum of diabetic retinopathy ranges from no symptoms for mild disease to blurry vision (macular edema) to severe eye pain with blurry vision (neovascular glaucoma) to blindness (traction retinal detachment or severe vitreous hemorrhage).
Diabetes is the leading cause of blindness in people under the age of 60 here is the United States.

In brief: Yes, in late stages

Rarely will you experience symptoms.
If you do, it is usually in advanced stages. At that point laser surgery or intra-ocular surgery or intra-ocular injections are needed to preserve vision.
