What Is Diabetic Eye Disease?
Diabetic eye disease is a group of conditions that are specific to patients with diabetes. Diabetes causes damage to the blood vessels in the eyes, especially in patients who didn't always have their diabetes under control. Some examples of conditions that fall into this categorization include glaucoma, cataracts, diabetic retinopathy, and diabetic macular edema (DME).
