What is diabetic retinopathy?
Diabetes can damage the small blood vessels in part of your eye. This part of the eye is called the retina. It detects light that enters the eye. Then it sends signals to your brain about what the eye sees.
When this type of eye damage happens, it's called diabetic retinopathy. It can lead to poor vision and even blindness.
