Tailoring Eye Exams to Patients with Diabetes

Our patients with diabetes have many physical challenges to face. But their eyes may undergo significant changes that could lead to blindness. Your retina, the light-sensitive tissue at the back of your eye, is especially susceptible to diabetic retinopathy

Diabetes causes several issues with blood pressure, which affects your retinal cells. Low blood pressure can starve your retina of oxygen, causing parts of it to die. High blood pressure can lead to blood vessels bursting or multiplying. Please request a diabetic eye exam and protect your ocular health.

The Effect of Diabetes on Your Eyes

PDR causes trouble for patients due to the development of neovascularization. Retinal blood vessels under increased pressure grow new blood vessels that fan throughout the retinal tissue. Blood leaking from these new blood vessels into the watery center of your eye can produce discolored vision. Eventually, scar tissue can form, negatively impacting your vision.

Macular swelling can lead to diabetic macular edema (DME), a complication of diabetic retinopathy. When the macula swells, you may lose some of your vision. You may experience washed out or blurry vision.

DME can worsen, and it can develop during either the early or late stages of diabetic retinopathy.

Our Retinal Camera for Diabetic Patients

Patients with diabetes have specific risks that require special attention. Our retinal camera comes complete with extremely sensitive ocular coherence tomography (OCT) and fundus photography that reveal the effects of diabetic retinopathy as early as possible.

With this vital equipment, we can better serve our patients with diabetes as well as adults and seniors at risk for various eye diseases. We scan for many eye problems, not limited to diabetic eye concerns. This imaging technology provides us with the tools necessary for early detection that can save your eyesight.
