New vessels developing in diabetic retinopathy are characterised according to whether they develop at or near the optic disc (NVD) or elsewhere in the retina (NVE). Among eyes with non‐proliferative diabetic retinopathy, 14.3% more argon‐treated and 29.7% of xenon‐treated eyes than controls had an early persistent loss of one or more lines. The past history of retinopathy both in the eye for which scatter laser photocoagulation is being considered and in the fellow eye needs to be considered. Navigating laser treatment (Navilas) is a new technology for delivering retinal laser with integrated imaging and navigation systems. For panretinal photocoagulation (PRP), navigating pattern laser has a few advantages over Pascal; the most important is its ability to deliver multiple spots of both long‐ and short‐pulse laser. Vitrectomy surgery is currently the main line of treatment for persistent vitreous haemorrhage that is dense enough to cause vision impairment and preclude PRP treatment.
