Eye Disease & Diabetes

People living with type 1 and type 2 diabetes are at a higher risk of eye disease. Diabetic complications can lead to ocular disease including glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, and diabetic macular edema. In addition to managing your diabetes, the best way to protect your eyes is with a regular eye exam.

What We Look For

We tailor eye exams for diabetic eyes. We use customized techniques and methods to ensure your eyes are healthy. This allows us to fully evaluate your eyes for diabetic retinopathy, diabetic macular edema, and any other complications that are associated with diabetes.

More than 2 in 5 Americans have some stage of diabetic retinopathy. Like many ocular diseases, diabetic retinopathy is almost impossible to detect on your own in the early stages. Symptoms in the later stages include blurry vision and floating spots, but by the time you notice these issues the damage is often irreversible.

If it’s not diagnosed, diabetic retinopathy can progress to neovascular glaucoma and diabetic macular edema, both of which can lead to blindness. An annual eye exam is the best way to protect your eyes and keep you seeing clearly.

Diabetic macular edema is a serious eye disease that happens when conditions like diabetic retinopathy go untreated. It’s caused by a build-up of fluid in the macula, the central part of the retina. Because of the location of the macula, macular edema affects your central vision and can cause other issues like faded colors and blurry vision.

If diabetic macular edema is allowed to progress, it can lead to complete loss of central vision and blindness. The best way to prevent this is with an eye exam once a year. With regular eye exams, we can catch vision issues early and implement the appropriate disease management plan.
