Summary: The diabetic retinopathy is one of the most frequent causes of vision loss. Simultaneously it belongs to the most prevalent complications of long-standing diabetes. Diabetic retinopathy is progressing illness, in which 3 phases are distinguished: non-proliferative, pre-proliferative and proliferative. In ophthalmic practice, cases of the asymmetrical course of disease are happening, when in one eye it has non-proliferative character, whereas in the fellow is achieving the proliferative phase. A possible reason of occurring such a situation is presence of carotid artery stenosis on the side which comply heavier process of retinopathy. This pathology leads to haemodynamic disabilities within the eye and predisposes to supervention of neovascularization. The most prevalent reason of carotid arteries’ stenosis is atherosclerosis, the disease which often accompanies diabetes. The aim of our article is to show the connection between carotid arteries’ stenosis and the process of diabetic retinopathy. What is more, we want to propose simple and cheap diagnostic methods which allow an early detection of stenosis within carotid arteries.
