When I stare something for a while water comes out from my eyes and itching started in my eyes and then they become red.
I have red eyes about five days and my breathing speed is increasing when I rapidly move onwards n downwards.
I am Dr Neeraj Sanduja, I am a retina specialist working at Fortis Hospital Gurgaon. And I got my home Centre Viviana and Retina centre in Gurgaon. Today I will be telling you out on a very important disease, diabetes and its effects on eyes. Diabetes can affect your eyes in 3 ways, it can affect your retina the back part of the eye or it can lead to early cataract or it can lead to glaucoma, kalamotia. Majorly I will be telling you upon how diabetes affects your eyes leading to loss of vision. Diabetes, high blood sugar level can damage our retina by making our blood vessels weak and give some blood to the retina leading to diabetic retinopathy. Diabetic retinopathy can lead to vision loss in the significant proportion of patient if they don’t control their diabetes. Even if your blood pressure is high along with the high blood sugar it can affect your diabetic retinopathy in a very bad manner. Patient with diabetes may not be known whether he is having retinopathy or not. So, it is very important as soon as you have diagnosed you have diabetes you should go to a retina specialist for complete dilated fundus examination which includes retina examination and your eye protection checkup and your even vision checkup also. Retina specialist checks the retina and tells you whether your retina is affected by diabetes or not. In case you don't have any in Diabetic retinopathy, then we will call you after 1 year, in case diabetic retinopathy is there, it can be a mild type of diabetic retinopathy or it could be a severe type of diabetic retinopathy. So depending on the condition of the retina the treatment will be given as a diabetic, you may not have any symptoms initially because unless the central part of the retina maqualising valve your vision will be good or unless your blood vessels they start rupturing and bleeding inside the eye, leading to flashes and floaters inside the eye you may not know something is going wrong. So going to a regular check-up to an eye doctor is very important. Once as the retina specialist will see that diabetic retinopathy is there, we offer treatment in form of some special types of injection like anti-VEGF injection within the eye to reduce the swelling in the retina or even treatment is given in form of laser photocoagulation to stop the bleeding vessels from rupturing. Sometimes the bleeding is so extensive within the eye that, we may have to offer with track me surgery to take out the blood. First and foremost thing is that you need to control your blood sugar that is the only way you can get relief from diabetic retinopathy because if the diabetic retinopathy sets in your eyes, it's like a termite, it's like a deemak. So you have to live with that whole life and with timely treatment and prevention, you can get away from this problem.
Thank you very much.

High blood pressure can lead to hypertension, which is known to cause a variety of debilitating side effects or symptoms in the life of the patient. It can also lead to a number of related ailments which can affect the various organs of the body. The eyes are one of the organs that are most susceptible to this kind of spike in the body’s blood pressure. Let us learn more about the connection between the two.
Retina: When high blood pressure goes untreated for a prolonged period, it can easily start to affect the blood vessels that can be found in the retina. The retina is the third or the inner most layer of the eye which is sensitive towards light and usually helps in refraction. This is where the light reaches so that one can focus clearly on an image. When the blood pressure of the patient stays high for a prolonged basis, there is significant pressure on the blood vessels in this part of the eye which can lead to an eye disease known as hypertensive retinopathy. Sudden increase of Hypertension or Uncontrolled Hypertension can cause Papilloedema (Swelling of the Optic Nerve) which if untreated can cause blindness.
Symptoms: Symptoms of this eye disease include lack of clarity and focus when the eye comes to rest on an object, as well as headaches and other vision problems that typically spring from eye strain that one will go through while trying to focus even harder. It may be seen that the symptoms do not appear in the very early stages of this disease.
Diagnosis: The diagnosis of the condition is usually done by an ophthalmologist who will use an ophthalmoscope in order to project light towards the specific part of the eye so that the back of the eyeballs can be examined. The signs that the doctor will look for during the examination include narrowing of the blood vessels in this part of the eye, inflammation of the macula which is the central portion of the retina, and bleeding in the back of the eye. Also, the doctor will check for spots in the retina with the help of cotton swabs and exudates.
Treatment: The best and only way of treating this condition is by keeping one’s blood pressure in control with the help of medication prescribed by the doctor.
Prevention: There are many ways of preventing the onset of this disease, including losing weight so that there is less pressure on the body. Also, one must stick to a healthy diet and exercise regularly after taking recommendations on the appropriate exercises from the doctor. Additionally, it is also important to see a doctor on a regular basis so that there is constant monitoring and regulation of the medicines and the blood pressure.
