Hello Doctors, my mother is 52 years old and suffers from hypertension. Nearly four years ago she had an operation for retinal detachment which was succesful. Since the past month she has developed small capillaries in her eyes which actually never bleed but make the eyes look red and impair vision. No one is able to diagnose the problem. Is this hypertensive retinopathy and could she also get tested for diabetes? What kind of treatment would she need to undergo? She weighs about 75kgs and is 52 years old. Thank you for your advice.
What you have said about capillaries can be authenticated by eye doctor. for this finding you have to rule out diabetes. since in diabetes there are neo vas cularisation and capilary bleeding takes place which affect vision. in this case you have to consult a retinasurgeonfor opinion
