Adjusted dose of the drug needs to be detailed records in the combined medication table), and oral calcium dobesilate treatment), study group take tang wang prescription, take one bag each time and twice on day, control group take the same dose of placebo.

3. The study will last for 48 weeks. Once every four weeks follow-up, color fundus photography, fundus fluorescein angiography, and coherent optical tomography were performed every six months; ETDRS international visual acuity test was performed every months.

4. Curative effect evaluation criteria:

- Main evaluation criteria: the changes of degree of retinal microvascular lesions before and after treatment, according to the change of degree of retinal microvascular lesions (no, mild non proliferative phase, moderate non proliferative phase, severe non proliferative phase, proliferative phase), divided into aggravated, unchanged, reduce three conditions. Aggravated was defined as the degree of retinal microvascular lesions severity more than grade 1 after treatment; unchanged was defined as the degree of retinal microvascular lesions before and after treatment did not change; reduce was defined as the degree of retinal microvascular lesions reduced more than 1 grade after treatment.

- Second evaluation criteria:

- Change of the number of micro hemangioma of diabetic retinopathy before and after treatment;

- Change of the number of microvascular bleeding of diabetic retinopathy before and after treatment;

- Change of the number of microvascular leakage of diabetic retinopathy before and after treatment;

- Degree of change of macular edema of diabetic retinopathy before and after treatment;

- Change of Vision before and after treatment.

5. Diagnostic and monitoring indicators:blood pressure, fasting blood glucose test (every one month); glycated hemoglobin, blood lipids (every three months); Routine eye examination and fundus examination, including intraocular pressure, anterior segment, lens, vitreous body, and lens, vitreous need describe the conditions of opacity (every six months).

6. The provisions of the combined therapy
