Diabetic retinopathy is a eye complication of uncontrolled diabetes that presents as gradual blindness due to changes to the retina. If detected early, laser can be used to prolong eyesight as the retina is at the back of the eye where images are detected and sent off to the brain to be processed. Yearly eye examinations are required to detect the changes early when treatment is most effective.
