Diabetes is a disease that affects the blood vessels all over the body. Unfortunately, many individuals afflicted with diabetes often suffer from eye diseases due to the growth of abnormal blood vessels within the eye.
In this video from the National Eye Institute, we take a closer look at the causes and treatment options for diabetic eye diseases. Abnormally growing blood vessels can leak blood, fluids, and essential oils that lead to vision loss and increase the chances of blindness. Learn more about the treatment options in this full clip.
