Treating Diabetic RetinopathyRetinopat­a diab©tica: Tratamiento

Treating Diabetic Retinopathy

Treatment may help slow the progress of diabetic retinopathy. Your treatment plan depends on your condition. It may include frequent exams to monitor your condition, laser treatment, and other procedures.

Monitoring Your Vision

At first, your doctor may simply want to monitor your vision. From time to time, you may also have an angiogram. This test uses a special dye to create detailed images of the retina. These images help your doctor decide whether special treatments are needed.

Laser is one type of treatment that may help limit vision loss from diabetic retinopathy.

Types of Treatment

Special treatments can help stop bleeding, slow or stop new vessel growth, and preserve vision. The type of treatment you get depends on your condition.

  • Laser treatment can help stop leaks and limit vessel growth.

  • Surgery can remove the vitreous. This may help if the vitreous becomes filled with blood and obscures your vision.

  • Cryotherapy shrinks blood vessels and repairs the retina.
