The US Academy of Ophthalmology complains about the relationship between diabetes and retinopathy. In response, a new assistance campaign to combat the disease is launched this month.

As is known, diabetes strongly attacks the retina and in some cases can cause total blindness. However, diabetic retinopathy is not impossible and researchers at the Academy of Ophthalmology have shown that early diagnosis of the disease can significantly prevent the loss of vision that this pathology generates. Retinopathy from diabetes is the leading cause of blindness today.
