Abstract Laser treatment for diabetic retinopathy was the first intraocular treatment to provide a highly effective means for preventing visual loss in patients with diabetes. Although inherently destructive, laser treatment is remarkably effective in preventing visual loss and preserving vision long-term. This review will describe briefly the current techniques and discuss in detail the reported side-effects and potential complications of laser treatment of diabetic retinal disease.
