Will this treatment be suitable for her in this age?

My daughter is 17 years old and she has been suffering from night blindness from past 5 years. Her central vision is also becoming faint and she feels a severe pain in her eyes. Doctors has recommended for diabetic eye screening. Will this treatment be suitable for her in this age?

Your daughter needs a complete exam with an ophthalmologist, possibly a retina specialist.  She may need additional testing such as a visual field and ERG (electroretinogram).
