The eye in diabetes mellitus - Changes other than retinopathy

Swann, Peter G. & Schmid, Katrina L. (2002) The eye in diabetes mellitus - Changes other than retinopathy. Optometry Today, 42(12), pp. 30-32.


When we think of diabetes and its potential effects on the eye and vision, we tend to concentrate of retinopathy and the possibility of macular involvement causing a permanent vision loss and proliferative disease leading to blindness. Diabetes can, however, affect most ocular structures and this article will describe some of these changes.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
