All eyes require comprehensive care, but diabetic eyes require special attention. Since diabetic eyes are more susceptible to several serious eye diseases and other conditions, it’s vital that patients with diabetes have their eyes annually examined to keep these conditions at bay.
Our comprehensive diabetic eye exams are tailored specifically to diabetic eyes: we follow all conventions of our adult and senior eye exam, but with deeper levels of testing to ensure your eyes are not compromised in any way. Book an eye exam and protect your eyes today.
Our diabetic eye exams are tailored to detect a range of eye diseases, such as cataracts and glaucoma, that can form more quickly when blood sugar levels are too high. However, several eye diseases are specific to diabetes, including:
The retina is the innermost, light-sensitive tissue layer of the eye. When blood sugar levels are too high, these vessels can become blocked or damaged, and begin to leak. Your body tries to compensate by growing new blood vessels, which are often too fragile and can lead to scarring and eventual blindness.
Diabetic Macular Edema (DME) occurs when fluid leaks around the macula, the back portion of the retina that is responsible for detailed vision. This causes the macula to swell, causing blurry vision. If left undiagnosed or untreated, permanent central vision loss may occur.
We use only the most advanced eye care diagnostic, imaging, and testing technology to care for our diabetic patients. These include:
Considered the gold standard intraocular pressure test (IOP) and the most widely accepted method of testing eye pressure in the eye care industry, this is an important device for testing and detecting glaucoma.
A quick flash of light produces a digital image so we can determine the health of your retina. From there we can discern the effects of high blood glucose levels, detect any retinal tears or detachment and identify diabetic or age-related diseases.
This machine scans the eye and uses light waves to produce cross-sectional images of the layers that make up the retina. This gives us a clear picture of any threats to the retina we should be concerned about.
We use a specialized fundus camera to record images of the interior surface of the eye, like the retina and macula, in order to document the presence of disorders and monitor their change over time.
