Proliferative Diabetic Retinopathy

Diabetic eye disease is a leading cause of blindness in the United States and is caused by changes in the retina’s blood vessels. Blood vessels can swell and leak fluid, and may progress to complete blockage. New blood vessels can then grow on the retinal surface which are prone to bleeding. This is called Proliferative Diabetic Retinopathy. These changes may have to be periodically treated with laser and/or injections in the eye. Often such eyes will develop scar tissue and pull on the retina and cause retinal detachment. This requires surgery.

If you have diabetes then you need yearly eye exams since changes in the retina can occur without any significant symptoms. Dr. Peddada’s diabetic eye exam will monitor your vision and any changes caused by diabetic eye disease.

Contact our Auburn and Dothan Offices at (334) 521-0041 or our Columbus Office at (706) 221-9702 for a comprehensive evaluation and management of your retinal needs.

Clinic Update

Retina Updates

  • Macular Hole Repair Prognosis: We reviewed our surgical outcome data to predict the degree of visual acuity improvement based on the pre-operative visual acuity.
  • Wet Age-related Macular Degeneration: We are developing a new technique based on angiogram studies to assess why some eyes seem to respond more readily to treatment than others. Work is ongoing to provide clinical value to these methods.
