Diabetic Eyes Require Special Care & Attention

Diabetes is a systemic condition that can impact the body in many ways, including vision and eye health. Since diabetic eyes require special care and attention, patients with diabetes should undergo a comprehensive, diabetic eye exam at least once per year. However, our optometrists may recommend you visit more frequently.

Diabetes & Your Eyes

Did you know that the signs of early-stage diabetes can be detected during a comprehensive eye exam? That’s just one of the many good reasons to visit our optometrists at least once per year.

Diabetes may increase your chances of developing several serious conditions, any of which could threaten both your vision and eye health.

Diabetes increases your chance of developing diabetic retinopathy, cataracts, and glaucoma.

Diabetic retinopathy is a serious condition that occurs when diabetes damages the delicate blood vessels in your eyes. Nearly one-third of people with diabetes over the age of 40 already exhibit signs of diabetic retinopathy.

Cataracts occur when the lenses in our eyes become cloudy, interfering with clear vision. Patients with diabetes are not only twice as likely to develop cataracts, but they’re also more likely to develop them at a younger age than patients without diabetes.

Glaucoma is a serious condition that occurs when the optic nerve becomes damaged. Diabetes can double your chances of developing glaucoma. Glaucoma’s most common form (open-angle glaucoma) is particularly dangerous because it rarely exhibits symptoms until patients have already begun to experience permanent vision loss.

Diabetic Eye Exams at Ashburn Eyecare Associates

Since diabetes can negatively impact your vision and eye health, it’s vital that patients with diabetes receive special care and attention when it comes to comprehensive eye exams. To ensure you and your eyes get the care you need, Ashburn Eyecare Associates offers eye exams specifically tailored to the needs of patients with diabetes. These exams include the use of advanced techniques, including Optos widefield imaging and optical coherence tomography (OCT)

If you have either Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes, it’s essential that you undergo comprehensive eye exams annually. This is true even if your blood sugar is under control, and you aren’t currently experiencing problems with your overall health or vision.

For more information about how diabetes affects your eye health and vision, please speak to our optometrists during your next appointment.
