New biomarkers in the eyes could help manage diabetic retinopathy, and perhaps even diabetes, according to new research. During its early stages, diabetes can affect the eyes before the changes are detectable with a regular clinical examination. New research shows these changes can be measured earlier than previously thought with specialized optical techniques and computer analysis. The ability to detect biomarkers for this sight-threatening condition may lead to the early identification of people at risk for diabetes or visual impairment, as well as improve physicians' ability to manage these patients.
