About Diabetic Eye Exams

Individuals living with diabetes are at a much higher risk of ocular health complications. These can include, but are not limited to, eye diseases such as diabetic retinopathy, diabetic macular edema, and glaucoma.

Changes to the health of your eyes can be extremely subtle. In many instances of eye disease, vision loss will begin to occur before you realize it is happening. Usually, this vision loss is permanent.

A diabetic eye exam is your best line of defence. By having your eyes regularly examined, your optometrist can track the small changes that may indicate developing eye disease. We use precise technology and a combination of traditional and contemporary methods to ensure the most accurate diabetic eye exam possible.

Diabetic Eye Disease

Diabetic Retinopathy & Diabetic Macular Edema

Fluctuating blood glucose levels in diabetes may cause visual distortion including blurriness and floating spots. Diabetic retinopathy occurs when the blood vessels in the light-sensitive tissue (the retina) at the back of the eye are damaged leading to the leakage of blood and fluid, which if left untreated can lead to blindness.

Diabetic macular edema results from fluid accumulation in the center of the retina (the macula), which is responsible for clear central vision.

Managing the Risk

To protect yourself from diabetic eye disease and other diabetes related ocular complications:

  • Ensure you undergo a comprehensive eye exam at least once a year.
  • Manage your blood sugar properly by eating well, exercising, and taking your medication as directed.
  • Check-in with your doctor and medical support network for help.

Maintain Your Vision – Protect Your Sight

Over 100 million Americans have diabetes or prediabetes. Did you know that your optometrist can detect it first? Vision loss is usually preventable, but very rarely reversible. Book your appointment today.
