Those who have diabetes need to take extra special care of their eyes, as they are more likely to develop a number of disorders. We go that extra mile for our patients with diabetes, so they can live their best life. We make a point of having the latest technology in our office. It’s the best way we know how to provide top-notch optometry services to you, our patient.
The umbrella term “diabetic eye disease” for this group of conditions refers to the fact that they are more likely to develop in patients with diabetes. Glaucoma and cataracts have a higher prevalence in patients with diabetes. Not only that, but diabetic retinopathy and diabetic macular edema only occur in those with this disease.
In this condition, blood vessels become weak. New blood vessels attempt to take their place but they do not develop as strongly as the originals. These vessels can end up hemorrhaging into the eyes. Left untreated, this can lead to blindness.
Often preceded by diabetic retinopathy, this condition is caused by fluid leaking under the retina. This causes damage to the macula, wrecking your central vision. Without the macula, you cannot see faces, read, or do simple tasks around the house.
For our diabetic patients, we have our Optos equipment. This machine allows us to quickly take a high-resolution, ultrawide field image of your retina. We can immediately see if your retina has any diabetic bleeds or any damage due to high blood pressure, retinal tears or detachments, or age-related diseases.
Located in the Heart of Surrey, along King George Boulevard, we welcome anyone in the Langley, Delta, Cloverfield and Surrey area to come visit.
