Precautions to Those with Retinopathy
The retina plays a vital role in providing vision. Hence, a small damage to the retina can cause a significant loss of vision, even permanent loss of vision if not treated promptly. Therefore, those at high risk of retinopathy should take regular examinations to detect it early and grasp the golden moment for treatment. The process of treating retinopathy requires the patients’ persistence and adherence to the treatment regimen prescribed by the doctor.

The retinopathy treatments are aimed at preventing further damage to the retina and maintaining the vision as it was right before the treatment for as long as possible. Due to the complexity of the individuals’ natural disposition and severity of the disease, the treatment effectiveness, and post-treatment vision cannot be fully prognosed.
