Retinopathy (medical condition): Eye retina condition

Retinopathy (medical condition): Retinopathy is damage to the retina at the back of the eye. For diabetic retinopathy it occurs because the tiny blood vessels in the retina are damaged by blood sugars from diabetes. Eventually, the damage to these micro blood vessels causes them to rupture causing tiny clots and aneurisms at the back of the eye. The scar tissue created by this damage and growth of new retina blood vessels, leads to further retina damage. Eventually the retina can actually deform in shape and sometimes partially detach from the back of the eye.
