Diabetic Eyes Require Special Care & Attention

Eye Rx is here to give diabetic eyes the care and attention they require. Did you know that diabetes can be both detected and diagnosed during a comprehensive eye exam, even if you haven’t noticed any symptoms? This is just one of the reasons regular eye exams are a vital part of your overall health strategy.

Even if you’re not currently experiencing any other health problems and your blood sugar is well controlled using diet or medication, it’s still vital for you to visit your optometrist annually. The team at Eye Rx is here to lend a helping hand to your eyes.

How Can Diabetes Affect Your Eyes?

Diabetes can impact your vision and eye health in several ways, including:

Glaucoma and diabetic retinopathy do not usually exhibit symptoms in their early stages, which makes them incredibly difficult to diagnose without a comprehensive eye exam. If these and other diabetes-related eye conditions are allowed to progress, they can cause permanent vision loss or blindness.

What Happens During a Diabetic Eye Exam?

Eye Rx is proud to offer eye exams specifically tailored to meet the health care and vision needs of patients with diabetes. These exams include all of the thorough tests we perform during a comprehensive eye exam, as well as a variety of diabetes-specific tests and equipment including Optos, fundoscopic exams, and optical coherence tomography.

Individuals with type 1 or type 2 diabetes should undergo a comprehensive eye exam at least once per year, even if they are not experiencing any eye or health-related problems and have stable blood sugar levels.
