A vitrectomy is necessary if you are experiencing bleeding or tractional retinal detachment where scar tissue is pulling on the retina. By removing the clouded vitreous gel and scarring from the eye, this treatment can often improve your vision. If blood vessels are leaking, laser photocoagulation can shrink or seal them to help stop fluid from leaking and building up in your eye. Left untreated, this fluid buildup can lead to progressively worse vision.
Do not risk the future of your sight by postponing treatment. Diabetic retinopathy surgery has been proven to be a life-changing solution for many patients. For more information, speak to an eye doctor today.
