Hi, my husband is 46 years old, diabetic patient. He uses medicines to control his blood sugar level but sometimes he overeats and this has I believe been a reason for retinopathy to develop. Yesterday, he even had bleeding in retina. What are possible complications of retina hemmorage?

Failure of retina function can be associated with diabetic retinopathy, where tiny blood vessels are damaged by sugar in the blood present in diabetic patients. Weak blood vessels of retina can cause loss of vision due to swelling. If weak blood vessels in retina rupture they can damage retina and cause vision loss. If these vessels get clogged, parts of retina are not nourished any more and they die. New arteries start sprouting to bridge the clogged artery, but since they are weak they cause crowd in retina and bleeding. This is called proliferation. Bleeding unable light to reach retina, what causes clouded and blurry vision. New tissue can grow into the vitreous, which may pull on the retina and that can induce severe vision loss and possible blindness.
