Don’t let your diabetes diminish your eyesight.
The reach of diabetes in your body is vast. Patients know this. They feel this. What they might not know is that while diabetic patients are at an increased risk for cataracts, the most common issue among diabetic eye diseases is diabetic retinopathy. Retinopathy presents a serious concern diabetes patients should be aware of from day one.
Patients experiencing diabetic retinopathy, an issue affecting blood vessels in the back of the eye that can lead to decreased vision by means of swelling and bleeding, often aren’t aware of it until very late in the game. Over time, vision loss will increase, affecting both eyes.
The solution: get your eyes checked regularly.
Diabetic retinopathy is best treated by retina specialist. At OcuSight, we have fellowship-trained specialists on staff, with the best of diagnostic equipment that can be used to evaluate, diagnose, and determine treatment.
