They utilize the technologies, we have available, like the JVN machine. What is the Treatment for Diabetic Retinopathy? In the early stages of background diabetic retinopathy there may be no need for immediate treatment, but the disease should be carefully monitored by regular eye examinations. If the condition becomes more serious, medical laser may be used to seal leaking blood vessels, slowing development. With all serious eye disorders, early detection by regular eye e3xaminations result in more effective treatment, especially for a disease that is progressive in nature, such as diabetic retinopathy.
