Advanced Diabetic Eye Disease in Pregnancy

Puspha Raman, Bethel Indira Livingstone

Abstract


Women with pre-gestational diabetes are at risk of progression of diabetic retinopathy during the pregnancy. The adverse effects of pregnancy on retinal status persist into the first year postpartum. Diabetic eye disease may develop for the first time during pregnancy, and visual impairment at this stage has serious implications for both the patient and her family. Established sight-threatening retinopathy should be treated at an earlier stage in pregnant women compared to non-pregnant diabetics with a similar disease. This case report highlights a case of diabetic retinopathy in pregnancy which progressed rapidly and was successfully treated with timely surgical intervention resulting in good final visual outcome.
