Preservation of eyesight in a comfortable environment where you feel confident in our services is our top priority. We have invested in the latest equipment to monitor conditions of the eye that many other practices simply do not offer.
Diabetes affects 29.1 million American’s (9.3% of the population) and 27.8% have it but do not know. During a comprehensive eye exam we are able to catch early signs of diabetes. Diabetic eye disease comprises of a group of conditions that affect people with diabetes. All forms can cause severe vision loss and blindness.
Diabetic retinopathy is the most common cause of vision loss among people with diabetes and a leading cause of blindness among working-age adults. The eye is the only part of the body where blood vessels can be seen with our special lenses. Diabetes causes blood vessels to leak fluid and blood into the retina causing scarring and cell loss leading to loss of vision.
Early detection, timely treatment, and appropriate follow-up care of diabetic eye disease can protect against vision loss. Diabetic eye disease also includes glaucoma and cataracts. Approximately 1 out of 3 people with diabetes have diabetic eye disease.
We work with you and your primary care doctor (or endocrinologist) to keep you healthy, preventing vision loss and keeping you educated on how to best take care of yourself. Don’t let diabetes control you and become a statistic. Let us help you take control to stay healthy.
