New treatments for diabetic retinopathy are still required to obtain better visual and anatomic results. The global standard for treatment of diabetic retina is laser therapy. The use of anti-angiogenic drug is part of the additional measures of these traits.
Laser treatment has been defined and is used following a protocol called EDTRS, this protocol sets out how the laser should be applied to obtain better results.
A new type of laser has been released and is available for some special cases of diabetic retinopathy, the laser micropulse. This is technology similar to lasers used, but with a different application, enabling a closer approximation of central vision and increasing the laser stimulation in these areas to increase efficiency in the elimination of macular edema.
