Are you at risk?

All individuals with diabetes are at risk. The longer you have diabetes, the more likely it is for you to develop diabetic retinopathy. Studies have shown that 60% of diabetics on tablets and 100% of diabetics on injection have some form of diabetic eye disease over time. Diabetic retinopathy may be a problem for women with diabetes during pregnancy. Pregnant woman with diabetes should have a comprehensive eye examination even before family planning.
