Is the shadow in my vision related to diabetic retinopathy?
MAR 03, 2014
I am a diabetic, type 2, Hispanic. When I am reading I see a shadow that becomes apparent after a short time of reading. Could this be the result of fatigue or might it be diabetic retinopathy? I use a computer for 8 hours a day—is this a factor too?
There could be a variety of possible causes for this symptom, but it is unlikely to be related to diabetic retinopathy. I would recommend that you make an appointment to see your ophthalmologist for a comprehensive eye exam to explore the cause of this shadow.
