Proliferative Diabetic Retinopathy (PDR) Treatment
What is PDR
Taking into account all of the diabetic eye diseases, proliferative diabetic retinopathy has the greatest risk of vision loss.
PDR occurs with the development of abnormal blood vessels on or adjacent to the optic nerve and vitreous fluid of the eyes. Hemorrhaging of these blood vessels and bleeding creates sudden vision loss.
If immediate action is not taken, vision loss will steadily progress until complete blindness is reached in the eye.
