Diabetic Eye Exams

If you have diabetes your Primary Care Doctor has likely discussed the importance of having your diabetic eye examination. Diabetes affects many parts of the body however the eyes are one of the first organs damaged due to the amount of small blood vessels present in them. Anyone who has diabetes is at risk for diabetic retinopathy. The longer you have had diabetes and the poorer your control (among many other factors) increase your risk for diabetic retinopathy (Damage to the retina from diabetes). Not only can diabetes damage your eye directly, it also indirectly increases your risk for other conditions such as Macular Degeneration and Glaucoma. To protect your vision, take your diabetes seriously. Control your blood sugar levels, exercise and have an eye exam at least once per year, or sooner, if your Doctor recommends it. Our office will communicate our exam findings directly back to your Primary Care Doctor or Endocrinologist so that they have direct information on the status of your blood vessels health.
