A Closer Look at Diabetes & Your Vision
When you come in for a diabetic eye exam, we aim to keep you informed throughout the process. Diabetes has been linked to an increased risk of vision loss. It can also increase the risk of developing eye diseases such as cataracts, glaucoma, and diabetic retinopathy, which is the primary vision loss concern linked to diabetes.
Diabetic retinopathy is the most common cause of preventable blindness in the United States and occurs when the blood vessels in the retina are damaged. This damage is caused by a buildup of excess sugar in your blood, resulting in too much glucose in your eyes, progressively blocking blood flow.

Regular eye exams are important to help our team monitor changes in your vision and recommend treatment.
