Diabetic Eye Exams

Diabetes can negatively affect the eyes causing bleeding in the back of the eyes if diabetes is uncontrolled. It is important to have annual dilated eye exams to keep close management as retinal bleeding can cause permanent vision loss or even blindness.

Many times optometrists are the first to diagnose diabetes or educate on severity of diabetes as the retinas can give us a lot of information. The eyes are the only part of the body that we can see live blood vessels without cutting into a person so you can imagine the insight Optometrists have when looking at the small vessels inside the eyes through dilated eye exams.
