Diabetes & Your Eyes
We know living with diabetes can be frustrating and tough. That’s why we want to make sure your eye health is at its best through diabetic eye exams.
Our in-depth exam evaluates the inside of your eyes to check for any signs of diabetic stress on your ocular health. Your eyes can reveal a lot about your overall health, so make sure to incorporate regularly scheduled eye exams into your healthy habits.
Protecting Your Eyes
We want you to experience your best eye health. Our diabetic eye exams provide a high-quality analysis of the health inside your eyes, taking the stress off your shoulders.
Eye Q uses optical coherence tomography (OCT) and posterior segment fundus photography to take detailed pictures of your retina and blood vessels, 2 sensitive parts in the back of your eyes that can be affected by high blood sugar.
Blurred Vision & Other Problems
If your blood sugar levels aren’t being well managed, it can lead to some serious side effects in your eyes. Vision is fairly fragile, so it’s vital to take care of it. Find out more here about diabetic eye diseases and how you can prevent them.
People with diabetes are at a higher risk of developing glaucoma, a group of eye disorders typically caused by increased pressure inside the eye. It begins by affecting the outermost vision first and sometimes goes undetected until there is significant vision loss. Regular eye exams can help prevent this vision loss.
Most people will develop cataracts later in their lifetime, but people with diabetes are at a higher risk of developing them earlier in life. A cataract occurs when the crystalline lens of your eye becomes brittle and cloudy. Stronger prescriptions can accommodate for the change in vision, but eventually, cataract surgery may be required.
