Treating diabetic retinopathy with pan-retinal photocoagulation
For pan-retinal photocoagulation, it takes a bit longer for the vision to restore, and in some instances, the vision doesn’t improve. What we succeed in doing is to regress new vessels and prevent the eye from bleeding further.
Treating more advanced cases of diabetic retinopathy
Patients with vitreous haemorrhage or retinal detachment need more advanced surgery, which we perform in the hospital. The prognosis for this condition is somewhat guarded; because once the retina is affected, the recovery cannot always be guaranteed.
Nonetheless, it’s essential to remove any bleeding in the eye and also to treat the retina if it’s detached or if it has new vessels.
