Retinopathy types, treatment and management.

Sean Riordan

Retinopathy, a term often heard but not fully understood by many, refers to a group of progressive disorders that affect the retina, the light-sensitive tissue at the back of the eye. While often associated with diabetes, retinopathy can also be caused by other factors such as hypertension and genetic predisposition. This essay aims to shed light on retinopathy, exploring its causes, symptoms, complications, and available treatments. By delving into the depths of this silent epidemic, we can comprehend its significance and the urgent need for awareness and early intervention.
