What is Laser Treatment?
Laser treatment is blocking the dysfunctional part of the retina by giving it a laser shock. This helps prevent further damage to the retina. It also helps reduce the potential risk of further retinal and intraocular hemorrhage and retinal detachment. Also, the amount of yellowing of blood and protein on the membrane is reduced. The laser reduces the risk of retinal inflammation. This means that laser treatment can help prevent the potential risk of vision loss from diabetic retinopathy.
Does laser treatment improve vision? Does this cure diabetic retinopathy completely?
Laser treatment is useful not only to improve vision but also to maintain vision. This remedy is beneficial to prevent further damage to the eyes. After the laser treatment, the dark spots in front of the eyes do not become less. These treatments are only necessary to prevent them from growing further. Lasers don’t work to stop bleeding in the eye. But the laser is beneficial in preventing the eye condition from worsening. Depending on the patient’s body composition and uncontrolled blood sugar levels, there is still some risk of further worsening of the eye condition even after laser treatment.
