Laser Deemed Best Treatment for Diabetic Retinopathy
Date:12/31/2009

The study findings are published in the December issue of Archives of Ophthalmology.

About 700,000 Americans have proliferative diabetic retinopathy, and 63,000 new cases develop each year, according to background information provided in the news release.

Corticosteroids may slow the progression of retinopathy by reducing the production of compounds that promote the growth of harmful new blood vessels, the researchers said.

More research is needed to determine if steroids can be used without increasing the risk of glaucoma or cataracts, the authors said.

The U.S. National Eye Institute has more on diabetic retinopathy.
