What Is a Diabetic Eye Exam?

Header Divider

During our diabetic eye exams, our eye doctors will look for signs of diabetic eye conditions that can cause damage to your eyes and vision, like diabetic retinopathy. Diabetic retinopathy is a diabetic complication that causes blood vessels in your eyes to grow abnormally and potentially leak, threatening your eyesight. We use cutting-edge diagnostic tools to check your eyes and vision and to spot any potential indicators long before your vision is harmed.

Early detection is always crucial for protecting your vision from eye diseases as it gives us time to design a plan that will keep you seeing clearly. Our skill and advanced technology allow us to stay one step ahead with your condition, so your eyesight is never interrupted.

Causes & Risk Factors

One of the most serious complications of diabetes is diabetic retinopathy, which can affect anyone with type 1 or type 2 diabetes — which is why early detection is crucial. While just having the condition itself is enough to develop diabetic eye disease, the following factors can put you even more at risk:
  • Having diabetes for an extended period of time
  • Poor blood sugar control
  • High blood pressure or cholesterol
  • Pregnancy
  • Using tobacco


You may not notice any diabetic retinopathy symptoms at first, but as the condition progresses, the following symptoms will occur:

  • Blurry vision
  • Spots or strings in your sight
  • Changing or fluctuating vision
  • Dark or empty areas in your sight
  • Loss of vision
Unfortunately, symptoms can indicate irreversible vision damage, so be sure to schedule a visit right away if you notice any of these signs.
