A new level of eye care for Diabetic Retinopathy.
Diabetic Retinopathy is damage to the blood vessels in the retina (the lining in the back of the eye that holds all the cells that we see with). Diabetes causes the blood vessels to weaken and they can leak blood, water, and/or cholesterol. New, abnormal, weak blood vessels can grow in the eye and are at risk to hemorrhage.
