Diabetic Eye Problems
Damaged blood vessels in the eye can develop in people who have had diabetes for several years. Years ago many diabetics with this problem lost their vision. Today the chance of preserving vision is very good because we have learned how to control diabetes better and how to stop the progressive loss of vision. Lasers and new surgical techniques have made the difference. Virginia Mason ophthalmologists have been and continue to be at the forefront of diabetic eye care.
