In brief: Yes

Diabetic retinopathy is very treatable with laser, steroids, and a new class of medicines called vegf inhibitors.
The specific treatment needed depends on the type and extent of the retinopathy. The most important thing is that early treatment always gives the best results. Diabetics need to be monitored at least every year to evaluate for any retinopathy.
