We care deeply about our patients and their vision. Eye disease can sneak in, quickly, quietly, and sometimes without symptoms. Regular eye exams are extremely important in battling eye disease, including diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma, macular degeneration, and cataracts.
Diabetes affects millions of Americans and can have serious consequences for your eyesight including glaucoma and diabetic retinopathy. Both glaucoma and diabetic retinopathy can go unnoticed until vision loss occurs and the optic nerve is irreversibly damaged. It’s important for every patient to be tested yearly for eye diseases, but especially important in the management of diabetes.
The aging process brings with it many changes, including changes in your vision. Although many of these adjustments are completely natural, such as difficulty focusing up close, it’s important to heed the warning signs of more serious conditions. Cataracts occur when protein builds up on the lens of the eye. Your vision may become cloudy and light may seem dimmer than before. Age related macular degeneration affects a part of the retina, called the macula, which controls detailed central vision. Macular degeneration may begin to blur the center of your vision, and in more advanced cases, cause vision loss.
