Your Eyes and Diabetes

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, diabetes is the leading cause of vision loss in the United States.

A 2013 article by Medical News Today talks about diabetic eye disease, the importance of regular eye exams, and reducing the risk of losing your vision. Diabetic retinopathy, cataracts, and glaucoma are the most common forms of diabetic eye disease and if you are not having an annual eye exam, you may not know you have the disease until it is too late to save your vision.

While loss of vision is common in those who have diabetes, you can reduce your risk. Early detection is key to receiving the right kind of treatment and to saving your vision.

If you have diabetes, please contact us to schedule a retinal eye exam.
