Poorly controlled Diabetes results in significant growth of the vessels in the back of the eye. It is called proliferative retinopathy. Unfortunately, those vessels do not have support and they may break and bleed producing hemorrhages. In other cases, they will produce aneurysms or abnormal dilation of the vessel. When the damage to the retina is serious enough, vision is compromised and eventually lost.
