Retinopathy – Cause of Diabetes

Complications of diabetic retinopathy

Diabetes is a chronic injury of vascular complications leading to more dangerous for the kidneys, arteries, nerves… especially the retina (tissue oxygen consumption highest body).

This is also the leading cause of blindness in the flood caused the age of 20 – 65. The screening and early treatment can slow progression of the disease and prevent complications of blindness.

Inthe developed countries like USA, Japan, Singapore… are equipped with very modern eye care. Images may be transferred to trauma centers of control and treatment of diabetic retinopathy to be the expert examination and laser fluorescence angiography of the retina and frozen to preserve vision in patients.

In other countries, diabetic retinopathy is increasing. However, diabetic patients have only been tracking and management in medical centers. When there are complications in the eye, the new patients to specialist eye examination. These patients should be monitored very, management and early treatment diabetic retinopathy a systematic way.

Detection and treatment

To evaluate the retinal damage caused by diabetes, there are several methods: ophthalmoscopy, fundus color photography digital, fluorescent retinal angiography.

Thanks to accurately detect lesions on the retina, making specified fluorescence angiography, retinal laser light can be frozen in time conservation vision for patients with diabetes to serve the treatment, Institute also equipped with laser wavelength 532nm, this machine is a laser that can absorb circuit to 90% energy. This contributes to reduce complications, increase the therapeutic effect of laser retinal optic winter.

Cataracts as well as potential complications of blind diabetic patients. The lens replacement surgery soon Phaco method will help to diagnose and monitor retinal most efficiently.

The process of examination and treatment for patients with diabetic retinopathy as recommended by the Diabetes Association of the World:

1. Eye examination.

2. Eye on microscopic examination, counseling treatment.

3. Ultrasound evaluation of the state service eye glasses – retina.

4. Examination and fundus color photography digital data.

5. Retinal fluorescence angiography (if necessary).

6. Optical laser color laser retinal East 532 (when indicated).


Although there have been major advances in science and technology in the diagnosis and treatment of diabetic retinopathy, but periodic eye examinations are important, to help early detection, management and timely laser treatment. That is the best way contribute to improving quality of life for patients with diabetes.
