Abstract

Hyperglycemia, through several complex physiologic mechanisms, is thought to be the principal cause of the microvascular damage seen in diabetic retinopathy (DR) [1, 2]. Consequently, several studies have demonstrated the importance of maintaining a normal or near-normal glycemic status in patients with DR [3-6]. Additionally, there are data suggesting that hypertension, a common comorbidity with diabetes mellitus, may exacerbate the microvascular damage caused by hyperglycemia [7].
