Diabetic Eye Exams

Yearly eye examinations are important for patients diagnosed with diabetes. The longer one has diabetes, the greater likelihood of visual complications . Vision can fluctuate for patients with poor blood sugar control. If bleeding occurs in the back of the eye, the patient’s visual ability could be negatively impacted-making reading or driving very difficult. For severe cases, visual impact can be profound and glaucoma, a potentially blinding condition, could develop. Regular dilated eye exams allow Dr. Ballitch and Dr. Finn to observe the effects from diabetes and recommended further treatment or observation to minimize visual loss. Diabetes affects millions of Americans and can degrade quality of life if it progresses. In early cases of diabetes, the patient may be unaware of any changes with their eyes.
