Diabetic Retinopathy: Frightening, but Controllable

Advanced Proliferative Diabetic Retinopathy

This slide shows Advanced Proliferative Diabetic Retinopathy. Note the scarring on the surface of the retina and over the optic nerve on the left. Usually by this stage, vision becomes impaired. With regular eye exams, reaching this advanced stage is preventable. Advanced Proliferative Retinopathy requires more extensive panretinal photocoagulation treatment of the entire retina, preserving only the central retina for vision.
