Diabetic Retinopathy Research

Thanks to recent advances in retinal imaging (Optical Coherence Tomography), we are learning much more about the pathophysiology of diabetic retinopathy. Nationwide clinical studies are underway to determine the best combination of laser and injections for treatment of this disease (DRCR.net). Pharmaceutical companies are also working to create longer lasting injections with lower side-effect profiles.
