Diabetic retinopathy is caused when diabetes affects the small blood vessels in the retina, the part of the eye that acts rather like a film in a camera. Screening is an effective way of detecting diabetic retinopathy as soon as possible. Untreated diabetic retinopathy is one of the most common causes of blindness in the working-age population. Diabetic retinopathy does not usually affect your sight until changes are advanced. Annual screening is an effective way of preventing sight loss caused by diabetes.
