Diabetic Retinopathy (DR) and Retinitis Pigmentosa

Diabetic retinopathy (DR) is a leading cause of blindness but it is not known why retinopathy should be so early and so severe a complication of diabetes. The sensory loss caused by minute retinal lesions is part of the problem, but the diabetic changes in the brain are different and less serious than in the retina, often described as an outpost of the brain. This has led to the concept of a local factor being responsible for the microvasculopathy of DR. There are physiological factors unique to the retina, and it is suggested below how these, by causing hypoxia very early in diabetes, could activate cytokines that produce the microvascular changes.

Retinitis Pigmentosa

Retinitis pigmentosa is an inherited eye disorder. Both eyes are involved in this medical condition. If it starts in one eye, the other eye usually develops the same condition in a number of years. Most cases are genetic, inherited in a variety of ways, including dominant, recessive, and sex-linked recessive. However, few cases are sporadic and lack a family history of the disease.
