Diabetes may damage your Retina


Retina is very critical part of your eyes, a layer at the back of the eyeball that contains cells sensitive to light, which trigger nerve impulses that pass via the optic nerve to the brain, where a visual image is formed. There are many diseases which can affect Retina and may cause permanent damage to vision. Most common cause is Diabetic Retinopathy, ARMD, Injuries to Retina and various other drug induced, age induced diseases. It is advisable to always have a preventive check-up of Retina, especially who are diabetic, to avoid any permanent vision loss. A Retina Specialist uses various diagnostic equipment to image your retina, map the retinal health, and suggest you best treatment possible.
