Answer

One of the most important aspects in the management of diabetic retinopathy is patient education. Inform patients that they play an integral role in their own eye care.

Excellent glucose control is beneficial in any stage of diabetic retinopathy. It delays the onset and slows down the progression of the diabetic complications in the eye.
