What Is Diabetic Retinopathy?
Protect Your Eyes from Diabetes with Annual Exams
Our diabetic eye exams, designed specifically for individuals with type 1 and type 2 diabetes, include all the thoroughness of standard comprehensive eye exams while conducting extra tests to identify any diabetes-related complications affecting your vision and eye health. We also screen for glaucoma because diabetic retinopathy heightens its risk. Leveraging advanced technology, we’re equipped to detect even the smallest and most subtle indications of issues, enabling us to provide protective measures before symptoms lead to lasting damage.
