Duke retinal specialists are experts in diagnosing, managing, and treating diabetic retinopathy and are recognized leaders in diabetic retinopathy research. We use the latest imaging devices to identify the changes in your eye caused by the disease as early as possible and recommend the most appropriate course of treatment. That’s important because left untreated, diabetic retinopathy can cause permanent blindness. Our advanced training and experience ensure you get the care you need -- when you need it -- to prevent or halt the vision loss often associated with diabetic retinopathy.
