ABSTRACT
The article presents a case study of a 23-year-old man with a history of insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus. He was presented for an opthalmic examination. His results showed a relative pupillary defect in the right eye and 20/20 vision in the left eye. His treatment may involve thermal laser photocoagulation in the ischemic retina in order to reduce the production of vasoproliferative factors.
