What’s a Diabetic Eye Exam?

Diabetes puts your eyes at risk of diabetic eye disease, which can cause permanent vision loss.

A diabetic eye exam offers more in-depth testing and diagnostics than a standard eye examination.

We use advanced diagnostic techniques to evaluate the health of your retina.

Tracking structural changes to your retina and other internal ocular structures helps us detect eye diabetic eye disease and other potential issues before they cause irreversible damage.

Diabetes & Eye Diseases

Diabetes is closely linked to several eye diseases.

Most of these diseases do not show any symptoms until they have already caused significant vision loss.

The best and only way to prevent permanent damage is to catch these conditions in their early stages.

Diabetic Retinopathy

High blood sugar levels can weaken the tiny blood vessels in the retina.

As these blood vessels sustain more damage, they start to leak fluid into the eye.

In some cases, they even cause scar tissue to develop.

Damage to the blood vessels can permanently impact your vision.

Diabetic Macular Edema

Diabetic macular edema commonly starts as diabetic retinopathy.

As the damaged blood vessels sustain more and more damage, they continue to leak fluid into the retina.

The macula swells as a result.

Eventually, the macula swells and thickens so much, it distorts central vision.
