In this study, regressed proliferative diabetic retinopathy, very severe, severe and moderate non-prolifrative diabetic retinopathy patients who were going to have a cataract surgery, underwent a complete eye examination, OCT, FAG and color photography 2 weeks prior to their operation. All patients divided in two: 1) control group (Phyco,PCIOL), 2) triamcinolone treatment group (Phaco with PCIOL+IVT). One month after surgery a complete eye examination will be done especially; IOP and endophthalmitis. A 6 month follow-up will be done for these two groups and diabetic retinopathy progression will be checked.
