New biomarkers may detect early eye changes that can lead to diabetes-related blindness – ET HealthWorld

Washington: New biomarkers found in the eyes could unlock the key to helping manage diabetic retinopathy, and perhaps even diabetes, according to new research conducted at the Indiana University School of Optometry. The study was published in the journal ‘PLOS One’. During its early stages, diabetes can affect the eyes before the changes are detectable with a regular clinical examination. However, new retinal research has found that these changes can be measured earlier than previously thought with specialized optical techniques and computer analysis. The ability to detect biomarkers for this…
