What is Diabetic Retinopathy?

Diabetic retinopathy is an eye condition which can cause vision loss and blindness in people who have diabetes. It affects blood vessels in the retina.

In the early stages of diabetic retinopathy, the walls of the blood vessels in your retina start becoming weak. There are tiny bump like growths on the vessel walls, nerve fibers in the retina swell and produce white spots in the retina. As diabetic retinopathy progresses, new blood vessels may grow, which can frequently break open and bleed, filling eye with blood and threaten your vision.

As Diabetic retinopathy may not have any symptoms at first therefore, it is very important for you to have a comprehensive eye and retina checkup at least once a year. Early diagnosis can help you take steps to protect your vision.

Laser for Diabetic Retinopathy Treatment:

At advanced stage of Diabetic retinopathy laser technology is used for treatment. Depending on your condition our eye specialist will decide and suggest you the plan of treatment, that is, the type of treatments, number of sessions required etc. Laser treatment is an outpatient procedure so barring any complications you can leave the hospital on the very same day.

How Laser Treatment is done?

In this treatment an intense and highly energetic beam of light is focused on the area of your eye to be treated. This will reduce the retinal thickening and stop bleeding. At Asian Eye Specialty Diabetic Eye Centre we are equipped with Zeiss Multispot Retinal green laser. The pan retinal laser prevents major complications of Diabetic retinopathy and prevents severe diminution of vision in long run. A numbing and dilating solution is used for the procedure. Therefore you cannot drive yourself after the treatment.

Because diabetes is a lifelong condition, future retinal damage and vision loss is still a possibility but it happens only in case where diabetes is uncontrolled. So if you are considering laser treatment for diabetic retinopathy in Pune then make sure you take all necessary steps to keep your diabetes in control and have regular eye exams.
