Diabetic Eye Exams
Diabetes is a disease that is on the rise currently throughout America and the rest of the world. Since diabetes affects the small blood vessels of our body first, complications can often be seen in the back of the eyes long before any other effects to the rest of the body.
Complications can range from minor retinal bleeding or glasses prescription changes to vision threatening scenarios such as retinal detachments. With these facts in mind, allow our doctors to complete the care needed for your annual diabetic eye examinations. Not only will this protect your vision, but we can also ensure you are doing a good job with blood sugar management.
It is recommended that diabetics have comprehensive eye examinations yearly and we also have technology such as retinal photography to help document your eye health. Finally, we will also send a comprehensive report of your eye health to your primary care physician to ensure good record maintenance and continuity of care. If you are diabetic or have a family history of diabetes, please call our office to schedule your annual eye examination!
