If an eye haemorrhage has already occurred (vitreous haemorrhage), laser treatment might not be able to be applied, as the ophthalmologist does not have enough visibility. A certain waiting time may be necessary to see if the haemorrhage clears up. This time varies for each patient. If the haemorrhage does not clear within reasonable time, an operation called vitrectomy may be needed.
Depending on the complexity and age of these scars, second operations may also be required.
At our Laservisión clinic we have the most advanced Fluorescein Angiography diagnosis system, a digital photography device with excellent image quality that provides the ophthalmologist with a greater insight into lesions in the diabetic person’s retina and, therefore, enables better decision making.
