Overview

Risk Factors

All patients with diabetes mellitus are at risk of developing diabetic retinopathy. This includes those with Type I diabetes (juvenile onset) and those with Type II diabetes (adult onset). The longer a person has diabetes, the greater the risk of developing an ocular complication. During pregnancy, diabetic retinopathy may also be a problem for women with diabetes. It is recommended that all pregnant women with diabetes have dilated eye examinations each trimester to protect their vision.
