Vision Rive Droite: 19 Rue Sonnex, 1218 Grand Saconnex (fax +41 22 717 02 00)
Diabetic retinopathy is a complication of diabetes that occurs on the back of the eye. It may affect both the central retina and the peripheral retina.
Treatments for eye impairments include improving glycaemic control and blood pressure, but may also involve laser, intravitreal injections or vitrectomy surgery.
Treatment targeted specifically at neovascularization and its complications involves intravitreal injections and laser treatment of the retina (pan-retinal photocoagulation). Vitrectomy surgery is necessary when there is bleeding in the vitreous humour (the fluid inside the eye) or in the case of a detached retina that make it impossible to use laser treatments.
