Diabetic Eye Care
At the very least, diabetic patients should have a comprehensive eye exam every year. Diabetes is one of the leading causes of preventable blindness in this country and every year, thousands of diabetic patients become visually impaired because they seek treatment too late.
Some of the landmark studies in medicine have shown that if certain symptomless stages of diabetic eye disease are reached, a simple in office laser procedure can stabilize the problem and thus prevent vision loss. Once vision is lost, it is much more difficult and less successful to try and return the vision to normal function.
For this reason, diabetics should be sure to have yearly eye exams. At Precision Eye Care, not only can we offer a complete evaluation, but usually we can perform all diagnostic and treatment modalities in office for your convenience.
