Proliferative Diabetic Retinopathy - retinal disease that includes abnormal growth of new blood vessels (neovascularization) and fibrous tissue. Usually develops because of insufficient oxygenation of retinal tissue (ischemia) in diabetes. Leads to hemorrhages, retinal traction and detachment, and visual loss. You can see in the images there is neovascularization at the optic disc and also in the inferior temporal area of the retina.
