    I have been told that there are signs of diabetic retinopathy in my eyes, and that I might need to have treatment by injection into my eyes, which terrifies me. Is retinopathy reversible?

    In many cases, the answer is yes, it may be reversed. In many others stopped in its tracks but depends on the condition of your eyes, however treatment (laser or injections) is nothing to be worried about. Read google so you are armed with the information you need
