Diabetic Eye Evaluations And Treatment

Diabetic Eye Evaluations And Treatment Diabetes Mellitus is a disorder of blood sugar that can have many serious effects on the eye.

Diabetes can cause decreased blood supply to the retina which results in the growth of abnormal new blood vessels or neovascularization. These vessels can rupture and bleed, leading to hemorrhage inside the eye which may then lead to scarring and other complications such as retinal detachment. Early treatment of neovascularization can reduce the risk of loss of vision.Another retinal compliation of diabetes is "macular edema" which describes fluid buildup in the central part of the retina causing decreased vision. Both of these types of retinopathies can initially be treated by in office laser therapy.Neovascularization is treated by "pan-retinal photocoagulation" in which the peripheral retina is treated with hundreds of laser applications to preserve the central retina.
