Signs and Symptoms of Eye Microaneurysms
MAY 09, 2023
What are the signs and symptoms of eye microaneurysms?
Generally there are no signs or symptoms of retinal microaneurysms (swelling and leaking of tiny blood vessels in the back of the eye). These are most common in patients with diabetes, but can also occur with hypertension and other retinal vascular diseases.
If you suspect you’ve had a microaneurysm or are experiencing concerning symptoms, see an ophthalmologist for a comprehensive dilated eye exam. A careful examination of the retina can reveal a microaneurysm and other signs of vascular conditions affecting the back of the eye.
