The early phase of diabetic eye disease. It arises when diabetes affects the retinal blood vessels and nerves. The changes are reversible and not a threat to central vision. However, if it goes untreated the condition can lead to advanced diabetic eye disease, i.e., proliferative diabetic retinopathy (PDR).
