Inverse Colour - Neovascularisation of the Disc
Diabetic retinopathy (DR) is a sight-threatening complication of diabetes, usually affects both eyes. DR usually depends upon the duration of diabetes. If left untreated, diabetic retinopathy can lead blindness. Proliferative diabetic retinopathy (PDR) is the more advanced form of the disease. At this stage, circulation problems deprive the retina of oxygen. As a result, new, fragile blood vessels can begin to grow in the retina and into the vitreous, the gel-like fluid that fills the back of the eye. The new blood vessels may leak blood into the vitreous, clouding vision. The 20-degree inverse colour fundus photograph shows new vessel at disc, suggestive sign of PDR.
