Retinal Laser Treatment for Diabetic Retinopathy

Retinal Laser Treatment for Diabetic RetinopathyAll diabetic patients should have a yearly eye examination by a qualified eye care provider. Depending on the blood sugar control, without adequate treatment some patients may experience the threat of reduction of their vision or a true reduction in vision.

This may be halted with tight blood sugar control and the use of a laser to decrease the swelling of the retina caused by abnormally leaky blood vessels.
