Diabetic retinopathy

Retinopathy is a complication caused by diabetes that is characterized by obstruction and damage to the ocular blood vessels located in the sensitive tissue of the retina. 


This disease develops in patients with high concentrations of glucose, being that, as the blood vessels proliferate, the presence of blood in the vitreous space turns the sight opaque, causing a decrease in the same with characteristics such as: spots, areas of lost vision, among others. 


The purpose of the study is to collect blood samples from donors without habituation or reaction to anti-VEGF drugs (lucentis, ranibizuman). 


Donors and/or voluntary participants must be at least 18 years old, diagnosed by a physician or ophthalmologist and be completely free of sexually transmitted infectious diseases.  Compensation for your contribution will be $50 and free transportation throughout the Houston area.
