Diabetic retinopathy (die-uh-BET-ik retin-NOP-uh-thee), is an eye-related consequence of diabetes. The blood vessels of the light-sensitive tissue in the back of the eye are damaged, which is what causes it (retina).

The early stages of diabetic retinopathy may show no symptoms or very minor vision issues. However, it may result in blindness.
