ABSTRACT
A comparative investigation of capillary fragility index and vascular changes visualized in the bulbar conjunctiva of young diabetics has been made. No vascular change in the bulbar conjunctiva could be specifically correlated to the presence of an increased capillary fragility index.

    OBJECTIVE -- Fractal analysis can quantify the geometric complexity of the retinal vascular branching pattern and may therefore offer a new method to quantify early diabetic microvascular damage. In this study, we examined the relationship between retinal fractal dimension and retinopathy in...
