Say Bye to Diabetic Retinopathy -  Experience Clear Vision

Diabetic Retinopathy Awareness

Damage to blood vessels inside the retina from blood sugar buildup is called diabetic retinopathy. The walls of your blood vessels leak fluid which damages blood vessels.

Symptoms

Blurred vision, distorted vision, decreased/dim vision, sudden vision loss, shapes floating in vision

Diagnosis

The doctor will diagnose via vision assessment test or dilated pupil, fundus and cataract exams on a slit lamp or Fundus/ Floria and/or OCT tests

Treatment

At Laser Vision Centre, treatment is performed via Argon laser (laser seals the blood vessels and stops them from leaking and growing) OR via intra-vitreal injections, depending upon the severity of the condition. The procedure takes 30 minutes per session, and the recovery period is up to 4 months.
