Eye Vision Issue

My Father is 60 year old and a diabetic patient. From 2011 year he is facing retinopathy problem in his eyes. As per doctor's suggestion conducted laser Ray treatment few times. Now, from sometime back he is facing a little problem with vision. So, consulted again with doctor and they undergone a scan test. With the report, they suggested for OZ injections in eyes for prevention of further downfall in vision. Also mentioned that it might required multiple times, i.e. after giving one injection in each eyes, they will check after 2/3 months and if required then they might have to give second time the same injections. I asked them for any side effect of this injection, considering it would be injected in eyes. They mentioned that there are very little percentage probability of infection. They also mentioned that if the eyes gets infected, then possible treatment would be surgery and in worst condition, complete loosing of vision. so, confused if we should go for this. Please advice.

Looks like your father has developed diabetic macular edema in his eyes. Treatment for this condition is a combination of laser and ocular injections based on the Severity. Any invasive procedure has a risk, and based on evidence available the incidence of infection following intraocular injections is pretty low nowadays if all routine precautions are taken. Since there is no other option, take an informed decision based on your doctor's advise.
