Diabetic Retinopathy : Laser Treatment for Getting Better Vision
Diabetic Retinopathy is a condition occurs in diabetic patients. A serious sight – threatening complication is developed by diabetic retinopathy. Diabetes causes progressive damages in the retina, which is a light-sensitive lining at the back end of the eye.Diabetic retinopathy is caused by excessive sugar in the blood stream which not only affects the eyes also most of the organs of the body. Over a period of time, blood vessels of the retina are damaged by the diabetic condition. When the tiny blood vessels start to leak blood and other fluids it indicates the occurrence of diabetic retinopathy.
Swelling in the retinal tissue, blurred vision affects both the eyes. A patient who has diabetic for many years, she/he has more chances of developing retinopathy. When this condition is left untreated, it will lead to permanent blindness. Early stages of diabetic retinopathy do not significantly show any symptoms. It has been insisted that the diabetic patients should undergo comprehensive dilated eye examination at least once a year. Early detection and treatment might prevent the vision loss.
Non-proliferative diabetic retinopathy (NPDR) – Early stage of the disease, the symptoms will be very mild. In NPDR retina blood vessels are weakened, blood vessels bulge and may leak fluid into the retina. This may lead to macular swelling. Proliferative diabetic retinopathy (PDR) – This is the most advanced stage of Diabetic retinopathy. Oxygen circulation is deprived in the retina. As a result, new fragile blood vessels begin to grow in the retina and into the vitreous. The new blood vessels may start leaking into the vitreous thus makes the vision cloudy.
The Early stage of diabetic retinopathy needs regular eye checkups with controlled blood sugar. In the advanced stages, Focal laser treatment / Photocoagulation either to slow down or stop the fluid or blood leakage into the eye, Scatter Laser Treatment / Pan-retinal Photocoagulation to shrink the abnormal blood vessels, Vitrectomy, to remove blood from the vitreous and scar tissues in the eyes are performed.
