Understanding Diabetic Retinopathy
Diabetes can affect the eye in various ways. Diabetic Retinopathy is a common vision-threatening complication which causes damage to the retina, the light-sensitive layer at the back of the eye. The risk of developing retinopathy is higher for patients who have had uncontrolled diabetes for a long time. It has been estimated that about 70% of patients who have had diabetes for over 15 years will have some damage to their eyes due to diabetes. Efficient methods are available to detect high-risk retinal lesions and blindness due to diabetes which can be prevented if early detection is done and timely treatment is administered.

Diagnosis and Tests for Diabetic Retinopathy
The main problem in diabetic retinopathy is that patients will not have any visual or ocular symptoms until the central seeing area of the retina (macula) is affected or if there is bleeding in the eye. The retinal examination must be done once a year (annually) starting from the time of diagnosis of diabetes for all patients. This involves:
- Checking vision using the latest equipment
- Measurement of the eye pressure
- Examination of the front portion of the eye by slit lamp for cataract assessment
- Retinal/ Fundus examination of the back of the eye
Techniques for Diabetic Retinopathy
Fundus Fluorescein Angiography (FFA)
Fundus Fluorescein Angiography (FFA) is a procedure which involves intravenous injection of a dye in the arm and then taking rapid sequence photographs of the retina. This helps the ophthalmologist to have a complete assessment of the changes in the retina and pinpoint the specific areas in the retina which are diseased.
Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)
OCT is a non-contact non-invasive retinal imaging technique, using infrared light to visualize the biological tissues of the retina, especially the central vision area of the retina, namely the macula. Qualitative and quantitative measurements of retinal morphology by the OCT makes it a powerful adjunct to conventional fundus examination and FFA.

Frequently Ask Questions
Diabetes is a disease that occurs when your blood sugar or glucose is too high. Insulin, a hormone, helps glucose from food get into your cells to be used for energy. Sometimes the body doesn’t make enough insulin or doesn’t use insulin well. Glucose then does reach cells and stays in your blood. This increases blood glucose levels.
There are 3 main types of diabetes: Type 1, Type 2, and gestational diabetes.
- Type 1 diabetes occurs when the immune system destroys the cells that release insulin, which is a hormone that helps the body use or store glucose.
- Type 2 diabetes develops when the body isn’t able to use insulin properly.
- Gestational diabetes is a condition that pregnant women develop when their body is not able to make and use insulin properly during pregnancy.
There is no proven cause of Type 2 diabetes. The condition is linked to being overweight, but not everybody with Type 2 diabetes is overweight. Genetic, environmental factors, lack of physical activity, older age, and family history may also play a role.
