Answer I was diagnosed with proliferative diabetic retinopathy 6 years ago. Mine was so severe that my course of treatment was laser treatments to cauderize the broken blood vessels. If you are in the early stages of diabetic retinopathy, please pay close attention to your blood sugars. Unfortunately for me, it was too late to save the blood vessels and retina, even with the treatments I still lost my vision.

Nonproliferative retinopathy has a better prognosis than proliferative retinopathy. Prognosis depends on the extent of the retinopathy, the cause, and promptness of treatment.
