Use of the laser can cure my diabetic retinopathy?

Viewed 538 Times

The aim of laser treatment is to preserve whatever vision there is left, rather than improve it. Also, as the duration of diabetes increases, especially if it is poorly controlled, fresh hemorrhages and leakages can occur. This may necessitate repeated sittings of laser. Unfortunately, our retinal cells do not have the capacity to grow. Hence, whatever cells are damaged, will result in permanent loss of vision in the affected area.
