What are symptoms of Diabetic Retinopathy?

Diabetic retinopathy can cause serious vision loss and blindness.

Symptoms that could be related to diabetic retinopathy include:

  1. Blurry vision
  2. Floaters
  3. Distorted vision
  4. Vision loss
  5. Dark or empty spots in your vision
  6. Flashing lights
  7. Difficulty seeing colors
  8. Difficulty with reading

If you experience any of the above symptoms, it is important to contact your eye doctor. Early detection and treatment can prevent severe permanent vision loss and blindness.

  • Diabetic retinopathy can also develop without any warning signs.
  • Getting regular eye exams is important because your eye doctor can detect early signs of diabetic retinopathy, even before you notice any vision problems.
