Diabetic Eye Treatments

Diabetic eye problems represent a group of eye conditions capable of affecting people suffering from diabetes, which include Diabetic Retinopathy (DR), Diabetic Macular Edema (DME), Cataracts and Glaucoma.

In some cases of diabetic maculopathy, injections of a medicine called anti-VEGF may be given directly into your eyes to prevent new blood vessels forming at the back of the eyes. The main medicines used are called ranibizumab (Lucentis) and aflibercept (Eylea).
