Diabetic retinopathy (DR) is one of the most important causes of blindness in developed societies. The risk of complications increases by the duration of disease and some coexisting systemic disorders affect the progression. Therefore, first step in the treatment of DR is regulation of systemic risk factors. Although laser photocoagulation and vitreoretinal surgery are the main treatment modalities of DR, medical approaches have advanced, currently. Antioxidants, inhibitors of aldose reductase, advanced glycation end products, protein kinase C and vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) inhibitors and intravitreal corticosteroid injections are medical treatment modalities of DR. The advances in medical approaches can retard the development and progression of DR. In this study, new medical treatment approaches were discussed with the review of recent literature.
