Diabetes & Your Eyes

Dia­betes is the lead­ing cause of pre­ventable blind­ness in the Unit­ed States.

It is impor­tant to have annu­al exam­i­na­tions of your reti­nas to make sure that no dam­age is occur­ring to the small blood ves­sels in the eye. If we can catch the changes ear­ly, there are many non-inva­sive and inva­sive treat­ments that can be done in the office to stop the damage.

In many instances, with some of the new­ly approved med­ica­tions for dia­bet­ic retinopa­thy we can even bring back vision that has been lost.
