What is the treatment?

Written by :

Diabetic retinopathy cannot always be treated. But people with mild condition do need to keep their blood sugar and blood pressure levels as close to normal as possible. This helps keep the condition from getting worse besides the following treatment can help:

  • Photocoagulation — This is a laser surgery to seal or destroy leaking or growing blood vessels in the retina.
  • Vitrectomy — This is a surgery to remove blood from the part of the eye called the “vitreous humor”. This surgery is done if the blood vessels in the retina leak into the vitreous humor.
