What Is Diabetes?
Depending on the type of diabetes you have, your body could have difficulty producing or using insulin, the hormone needed to process blood sugar. As a result, you may have a higher risk of developing health issues with your heart, teeth, and even your eyes.
Complications Linked to Diabetes
Your family physician can diagnose diabetes, but we can also detect it during comprehensive eye exam.
Diabetes can damage the blood vessels in your retina, increasing your risk of developing several eye diseases and conditions. If you have high blood sugar, you may even experience bouts of blurred vision.
Our team can detect diabetic eye diseases during an eye exam:
Diabetic retinopathy is an eye disease that develops when high blood sugar damages your retinal blood vessels, causing them to bulge, break, and leak fluids into your retina. Early stages of diabetic retinopathy often begin without noticeable symptoms, but it can still lead to vision loss if it’s not managed.
Diabetic Macular Edema
Over time, your macula can swell, leading to permanent vision loss, affecting your ability to read, drive, and recognize faces.
Cataracts develop as proteins on your eye’s lens clump together, causing the lens to develop a hazy, milky color that can impair your vision. Glasses or contact lenses can help correct mild cataracts, but only cataract surgery can remove the cataract for good.
