Diabetic Retinopathy eye disease is one of the leading causes of blindness in the United States. Many factors surrounding this micro-vascular disease can affect ocular health. Fluctuating vision, decreased central vision, and diffuse vision loss are a few of the symptoms that can arise with this devastating disease. Yearly dilated eye exams along with good blood sugar control are the keys to preserving sight. If you or a loved one has diabetes please make an annual eye health exam a priority.
