Good evening, thanks for the question
Diabetes mellitus or diabetes causes many complications in various organs by damaging the blood vessels of related organs. Complications of large blood vessels, for example in the brain and heart. Complications in small blood vessels that often occur one of which can attack the eye, known as diabetic retinopathy, where patients will experience vision problems and even blindness. The risk of suffering from diabetic retinopathy will increase in proportion to the longer the patient has diabetes mellitus.
Some symptoms that may arise include:
1. See black spots in the field of view
2. Difficulty seeing at night
3. Blurred vision
4. Loss of vision
5. Difficulty distinguishing colors
There are two types of retinopathy, the first of which occurs in the initial phase of development called the Non Proliferative Diabetic Retinopathy, in which the formation of new blood vessels has not been found in the retina. At an advanced stage known as Proliferative Diabetic Retinopathy, marked by the discovery of new blood vessels that are abnormal and fragile.
To make this diagnosis requires examination of the retina, blood vessels and nerve of the eye to assess the severity of the disease. At the initial stage, special handling may not be needed. Whereas in more severe complaints and advanced stages there are several treatment methods, namely: anti-blood vessel injection into the retina, laser, or vitrectomy to remove bleeding. The choice of treatment method will depend on the patient's condition based on the results of the examination.
To reduce the severity of symptoms, you can do:
1. Routine control of the disease until blood sugar is at the optimal level
2. No smoking and alcohol consumption
3. Eat healthy ingredients
4. Avoid fatty foods
5. Routine eye control for early diagnosis
6. Control blood pressure
The earlier it is diagnosed, the better it is to prevent more severe complications. Therefore do further consultations with an ophthalmologist for further examination and treatment plan.
That's all, hope you can help
