Inside the Research Center of Centro de Retina Médica y Quirúrgica S.C. We have a variety of clinical studies in order to provide the greatest amount of information to help our patients and anyone who suffers from eye diseases. Among them the Clinical Studies of Diabetic Retinopathy.
One of them is the Diabetic Retinopathy Clinical Studies, but what is this disease all about?
Diabetic retinopathy, like many diseases, is a complication derived from diabetes and affects the eyes, directly damaging the retina.
It is a degenerative disease, at first, the patient may have no symptoms or have mild vision problems, but with the passage of time they may lose vision completely. In this case, anyone with type 1 or type 2 diabetes can develop Diabetic Retinopathy.
You are more likely to have this disease if you have had diabetes for several years and have not controlled it adequately, that is; The more sugar you have in your blood, the greater the probability that you will present this complication in your eyes.
However, if a diagnosis is made in a timely manner, there is a great chance of reducing the risk of losing vision completely through the application of laser beam. In the case of having presented the symptoms in a more developed way, a surgery called Vitrectomy is performed, which consists of removing the affected membranes and removing the bleeding that occurs within the retina.
As we have mentioned, clinical studies are of great importance in medicine, to begin with, not everyone can do it, you need certifications and many approved protocols, not counting the number of specialists who also need to be certified to perform them.
Clinical trials are conducted in a specialized manner; it means that they are made for particular diseases. Thanks to them, specialists in clinical research, find cures and treatments to improve the quality of life of people who have the disease which is being investigated.
