Diabetic Eye Screenings: Diabetic Retinopathy
If you have Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes, we strongly recommended a diabetic eye screening every year. Diabetic patients are particularly susceptible to many eye conditions. However, most cases can be prevented with appropriate care, control of your diabetic condition, and regular eye screenings.
At William Fruchtman O.D., our doctors are specifically trained to detect and identify damage to the retina’s blood vessels caused by diabetic retinopathy. Later symptoms of this debilitating eye disease can include blurred vision, vision spots caused by very small specks of blood, and blindness. However, the disease often takes hold with no symptoms at all.
That’s why it’s important to catch the occurrence of diabetic retinopathy early—before any severe symptoms appear.
The best time to treat diabetic retinopathy is before your vision is affected. This is the time when treatment can have the best possible outcome to restore your eye health. Your treatment may include a surgical procedure, laser surgery or medicine injected into the eye.
