Abstract

Diabetic retinopathy continues to be an important cause of adult blindness among Americans and Brazilians. There are determinant environmental factors in the development of diabetic retinopathy although increasing evidence suggests a genetic component in diabetic retinopathy. The advances made during the last two decades with the purpose of improving the understanding of the mechanisms involved in the development and progression of diabetic retinopathy have prompted this review. This article has the purpose of revising and updating concepts about the ocular physiopathology of diabetes mellitus.
