Do you or a loved one have diabetes? If so, it is important to schedule regular eye exams! Even if you do not have any trouble seeing, it is important to get your eyes checked regularly. High blood sugar from diabetes increases the risk of eye problems. If diabetes is not well-controlled, it can cause changes in your vision. Diabetes can damage the small blood vessels in your retina. This is called diabetic retinopathy, and it can cause blindness if left untreated. Diabetes can also cause glaucoma by damaging the nerve connecting your eye to your brain, which leads to vision loss. If you have experienced vision problems, eye exams are essential in preventing the eyes from getting worse. Early detection through regular, comprehensive eye exams can help prevent vision loss by ensuring that your eyes are healthy. Even if you don’t have vision insurance, your medical insurance may cover routine eye exams. Talk to us about scheduling your next eye exam.
