The global Diabetic Retinopathy Market Forecast is anticipated to grow at a 11.9% CAGR between 2019-2025, reveals the new Market Research Future (MRFR) report. Diabetic retinopathy, simply put, is a diabetes complication that affects the eyes. It is of two types- proliferative (advanced stage) and non-proliferative (milder form).
This can be attributed to the growing patient population over the years. Diabetic retinopathy is usually referred to eye diseases in diabetic patients. High blood sugar level causes the blood vessels in the retina to damage which results in leakage and swelling of the blood vessels, thus stopping blood to pass through. Some of the common symptoms of diabetic retinopathy involve blurred vision, vision loss, dark strings or spots floating in the vision, impaired color vision, and empty or dark areas in your vision.
