Diabetes and eye diseases

In the following video Dr. Álvaro Fernández-Vega explains the ocular pathologies associated with diabetes.

Diabetes is associated with vascular problems affecting the lower limbs, heart and, above all, the eyes, which is where the metabolic disorder usually begins and is diagnosed. It is precisely in the blood vessels of the retina, which are among the smallest in the body, where the disease begins. Looking at the back of the eye we can see how the patient's circulatory system is, which is why it has so much impact at all levels.


When diabetes affects the eyes, this is diabetic retinopathy.
