Diabetic Retinopathy Treatment

Diabetic retinopathy involves swelling, leaking or abnormal growth of blood vessels in or near the retina. There are multiple stages to this disease, the earliest of which may not present any symptoms you can see.
Symptoms you can see include dark or black spots in your vision that increase over time, or severely blurred vision due to bleeding within the eye.


That’s why comprehensive eye exams are so important when thinking about diabetes and eye sight—both type 1 and type 2 diabetics are at risk for developing diabetic retinopathy, and the longer you have diabetes, the more likely you are to develop some form of the disease.


Treatments for diabetic retinopathy includes advanced testing, replacement of the inner gel inside the eye (called a vitrectomy) and different kinds of laser surgery. A recent clinical trial also suggested that better control of blood sugar levels slows the onset and progression of the disease in many patients.

We’d like to thank you all for your patience and understanding these last few months. As Governor Mike DeWine begins to slowly reopen Ohio, know that we will continue to make our patients’ health and safety or top priority.

We will continue to maintain the following precautions:

• Screen patients at the door with questions and by checking their temperature.

• All patients are required to wear a mask at all times.

• Keeping patients separate as much as possible.

• Limit the number of people in the waiting room.

• Wear our masks, wash our hands, and sanitize the patient rooms as we’ve been doing.

• Screen our employees before they begin working. Staff is not permitted to work if they are sick.
