Metabolic control is the first step in managing microvascular complications of diabetes including diabetic retinopathy. Important parameters proved to be of the key role in managing diabetic retinopathy and preventing sight-threatening complications thereof include blood sugar levels, serum lipid profile, hemoglobin levels and renal function tests. The severity of hyperglycemia and hypertension are main modifiable factors which may prevent the development of diabetic retinopathy. Thus, all the diabetics have to be compliant in having a good metabolic control which not only prevents or slows down risk of visual loss, but also is associated with a better cardiovascular activity ultimately contributing to a better quality-of-life in these subjects.
