Panretinal photocoagulation has minimal effect on corneal nerve density, sensitivity

Panretinal photocoagulation had an insignificant effect on corneal sub-basal nerve density and corneal sensitivity in diabetic patients, a study found.“The current study suggests that [panretinal photocoagulation] does not compromise the integrity of the corneal [sub-basal nerve plexus] and purely from the corneal perspective remains a relatively safe treatment modality in the treatment of [diabetic retinopathy],” the study authors said.
