In brief: What kind of laser?

If for diabetic retinopathy, it may slow the progession of retinopathy, hence delaying blindness.
Aggressive diabetes control is essential. What ever it takes under the supervision of a pcp or endocrinologist eager to treatit well. Most important, is your aggresive desire to treat it (cant wish good results. You need to go the extra mile for the rest of your life).
