What Is a Diabetic Eye Exam?

Diabetic eye exams are similar to our regular comprehensive eye screens but are tailored for clients with diabetes. They are equally as thorough and are accompanied by additional tests that are designed to focus on common diabetes-related issues and complications. Thanks to our advanced technology, we can see the smallest and most subtle signs of these conditions, allowing us to protect your vision before long-term damage can occur.

Why Are Diabetic Eye Exams
Important?

While diabetes affects the entire body, it has an outsized impact on your eye health. One of the most common conditions caused by diabetes is diabetic retinopathy, where the tiny blood vessels in the retina located at the back of the eye become damaged, resulting in permanent vision loss. By the time you notice the symptoms of this condition, the damage is usually irreversible. This makes it important for those with diabetes to attend annual comprehensive diabetic exams so that we can detect issues early and develop a personalized treatment plan that will help keep your vision and eye health intact.
