Answer

Patients with diabetes often develop ophthalmic complications, such as corneal abnormalities, glaucoma, iris neovascularization, cataracts, and neuropathies. The most common and potentially most blinding of these complications, however, is diabetic retinopathy. Microaneurysms are the earliest clinical sign of diabetic retinopathy. [2, 3]
