Aim of this NIS is to retrospectively document the management of diabetic patients with retinopathy in a naturalistic setting in Switzerland. Following elements are going to be analyzed:

  • which medication are used to keep blood pressure under control?
  • which medication are used for metabolic control?
  • the average control level of metabolism and blood pressure is compliant with the international guidelines?
  • laser photocoagulation plays a role in the control of metabolism and blood pressure?
  • there are differences in the control of metabolism and blood pressure between patients with DM I or DM II?
  • there is an influence of renal failure on the choose of medication?
