Diabetic retinopathy. Simulated view of a hand with four fingers held up as seen by someone with diabetic retinopathy. This eye disorder is a side-effect of diabetes, where high blood sugar levels damage the blood vessels in the retina. The damage leads to areas of the retina ceasing to function (black patches) and can eventually lead to total blindness. For an image showing how this scene would appear to someone with normal vision, see image C025/9030.
