Diabetes Retina
Eye disorders such as diabetic retinopathy (a complication of diabetes on the retina) can be detected early and treated well, so not all serious.

"Now there are active programs early in order to detect disease. We recommend that patients with diabetes in the retina of diabetic retinal photography technology, so that treatment can be undertaken and the vision can be saved," said Dr Ian Yeo Yew San , an ophthalmologist who served as a consultant at the Singapore National Eye Centre, members of the health tourism services, FlyFreeForHealth.

Types of diabetic retinopathy

Background retinopathy is an early stage of diabetic retinopathy that continues to grow slowly over a period of years. Patches of blood and fat can be displayed on the retina. For some patients, the blood vessels leak into the macula (the part where the retina to provide a visual focus), so blindness.

Proliferative retinopathy is the advanced stages of background retinopathy and is the leading cause of blindness due to diabetes terjadianya. New blood vessels on the surface of the retina and optic nerve. These ships tend to crack and eventually leak. Alternatively, the wound tissue to grow due to damaged blood vessels, which will, and pull the retina, so loose and lead to blindness.

Treatment diabetic retinopathy

If diabetic retinopathy at an early stage, treatment with laser photocoagulation to prevent it from getting worse. However, in cases that are already severe, the treatment can help reduce the possibility of blindness.

Treatment with a laser beam is designed to patch a leaky blood vessels and small incised wounds on the retina to form. Scratch wound reduces new blood vessel growth, and existing blood vessels will shrink and close. This laser treatment can be done without hospitalization.

As for advanced diabetic retinopathy, the treatment can be done by vitrectomy, which aims to remove the blood from the center of the eye and scar tissue that blocks the retina. Vitrectomy treatment was often accompanied by laser treatment. This procedure is performed under local anesthesia.
