Hi

I am 71 years old. I am NOT diabetic but I am told it is the same as diabetics get. I think it is called retinopathy? I do not have hypertension either.

The treatment will depend upon the diagnosis and the extent of damage. Retinopathies can be of many types. Many treatment modalities are there like laser, anti-VEGFs and even surgery. But precise treatment I will be able to tell only after you tell me the diagnosis and findings. Thanks.
