Metabolic syndrome is a clustering of abdominal obesity, insulin resistance, dyslipidemia and elevated blood pressure.  A global increase in the incidence and prevalence of metabolic syndrome has been noted.  In line with this, blindness caused by retinopathy both diabetic or hypertensive has also been a rising concern because of the increasing number of individuals who develop retinopathy as a complication.  With this study we will be able to identify if patients with metabolic syndrome would have a greater risk for developing retinopathy compared to patients who do not present with metabolic syndrome.
