Diabetic retinopathy is an eye condition that affects diabetic patients who have a high blood glucose level, or sugar, over a prolonged period of time through their life.

  • Blurred vision
  • Loss of the ability to see color
  • Appearance of Floaters

Excessive blood sugar can damage blood vessels in the back of the eye, preventing the retina from receiving sufficient nutrients necessary to maintain vision.

Laser surgery has been effective inpreventing significant vision loss in patients suffering from Diabetic Retinopathy.

Laser Photocoagulation can be performed to seal or prevent the growing or leaking blood vessels found in the retina.

A surgery called Vitrectomy can be used to remove the blood that has leaked into this part of the eye called the Vitreous Humor.
