Diabetic Eye Exam

There is a strong connection between diabetes and your ocular health. If you are diabetic, it’s critical for you to be on top of scheduling a diabetic eye exam annually and keeping a close watch on your eye health.

Diabetes is the #1 cause of vision loss in the working age population in America, which is a scary statistic. Work hard to keep your blood sugars low and stable and ALWAYS have an annual eye exam to look at the blood vessels.
Diabetic Retinopathy

Diabetic Eye Exam Decatur GA

Diabetic retinopathy is a complication of diabetes. The blood vessels that supply nourishment to the retina is weakened and can leak, swell or develop thin branches, causing a loss of vision. In its advanced stages, the disease can cause blurred or cloudy vision and blind spots – and, eventually, blindness. This damage is irreversible.

Fortunately, diabetic retinopathy is preventable. People with poorly controlled diabetes are most susceptible to developing it. Your risk is reduced if you follow your prescribed diet and medications, exercise regularly, control your blood pressure, and avoid alcohol and cigarettes. Regular eye exams are an integral part of making sure your eyes are healthy.
