Schedule your eye exam today to get a closer look at how diabetes can affect your vision as well as your health and wellness.
How Diabetes Affects Your Vision
Diabetic retinopathy is a disease that occurs when blood vessels in the retina are damaged. This disease is the primary vision care concern for patients with diabetes and the most common cause of preventable blindness in the United States.
While the early stages of diabetic retinopathy may display little to no symptoms, when they do appear, symptoms can include:
- Floaters or dark spots
- Blurred vision
- Loss of vision
- Difficulty seeing at night
A diabetic eye exam is essential for early detection, and permanent vision loss or blindness can result if the condition is left untreated.
Getting a Clear Picture with Optos
At Sokol Advanced EyeCare, our comprehensive diabetic eye exams include an assessment of the blood vessels in your eye through a dilated eye examination. To do this, we use retinal imaging to capture a clear picture of your eye that your optometrist can examine.
Optomap retinal imaging captures the details and provides our doctors with a high-resolution 200° image to determine the health of your retina, which is much wider than a traditional 45° image.Optos retinal imaging is generally a fast process that evaluates the retina for issues such as diabetic retinopathy and macular degeneration. This process allows our team to have a wide, clear image of your retina.
