Type 2 diabetes symptoms: Four signs in your eyes to look out for

Background retinopathy

Background retinopathy involves tiny swellings in the walls of blood vessels.

Referred to as “blebs,” they appear as small dots on the retina and are usually accompanied by yellow patches of exudates (blood proteins).

Diabetic maculopathy

Diabetic maculopathy causes vision problems, such as difficulty reading or seeing faces in the centre of your vision.

This is due to the fact that the macula provides us with our central vision.

And, when this stage of diabetic retinopathy occurs, blebs move into the macula.
