Diabetes is a leading cause of blindness in the western part of the world. Diabetic patients develop diabetic retinopathy which can progress to blindness. Diabetic retinopathy is associated with an increase of blood flow in the retinal vessels, ischaemia in the periphery and macular oedema. It has been shown in previous trials, that the pressure and metabolic autoregulation is disturbed in patients with diabetes, and it is believed to contribute to the development of diabetic retinopathy.
In healthy subjects the retinal arterioles will contract during an increase in blood pressure, but trials have shown that this response is impaired in diabetics. When the retina is exposed to flickering lights, the metabolism increase and the arterioles in healthy subjects dilates. In diabetics this dilation is impaired. In this trial we want to investigate if an ACE-inhibitor (lisinopril) or calcium channel blocker (amlodipine) influence this response in subjects exposed to increased blood pressure vs increased retinal metabolism.
