Abstract

This was a pilot study, where we demonstrated comparable efficacy and side effects of less extensive versus standard panretinal photocoagulation in patients with treatment-naïve proliferative diabetic retinopathy.

Panretinal laser photocoagulation (PRP) is considered the standard treatment of PDR1, but given the invasive nature of the treatment, side-effects like loss of visual fields (VF)2 and night vision3 as well as diabetic macular edema (DME)4 can be expected.
