Diabetic Eye Exam
Every Diabetic (Type 1 or 2) at minimum needs an annual comprehensive eye exam to look for changes in the retina that indicate diabetic retinopathy. Diabetic retinopathy develops with prolonged increased blood sugar and weakens the walls of the small blood vessels in the back of the eye. The duration of Diabetes and level of control both affect the severity of damage in the eye. In our Central valley, Diabetes is one of the leading causing of blindness. Diabetes can also increase your chance of early cataracts and glaucoma. Generally, these conditions are manageable, but if not caught early enough they can lead to loss of vision.
