What are my treatment options for diabetic eye disease?

Treatment options depend upon the nature of the diabetic eye disease but can include medications, laser, and sometimes surgery.

If early nonproliferative diabetic retinopathy is present, treatment of the eye may not be necessary if blood sugar is well maintained. If severe nonproliferative or proliferative diabetic retinopathy is present, laser procedures, surgeries, or injectable medications are available and may reverse, slow, or stop the progression of diabetic retinopathy.

Based on your vision diagnosis during examination, our diabetic eye care specialists will discuss with you the most appropriate treatment options.
