Tailored Care for Your Diabetes
What Is a Diabetic Eye Exam?
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.
Why Are Diabetic Eye Exams Important?
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
- Having diabetes for an extended period of time
- Poor blood sugar control
- High blood pressure or cholesterol
- 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
