ROSA TRIAL: A RANDOMISED CONTROLLED TRIAL OF CONTINUOUS POSITIVE AIRWAY PRESSURE (CPAP) IN PATIENTS WITH IMPAIRED VISION DUE TO DIABETIC RETINOPATHY AND CONCURRENT OBSTRUCTIVE SLEEP APNOEA (OSA)

This multi-centre randomised trial aims to establish whether we can improve the vision of adults with obstructive sleep apnoea and type 2 diabetes with established diabetic retinopathy by giving them continuous positive airway pressure treatment.
