How Can Diabetes Affect the Eye?
At South Bay Retina, we provide diabetic eye care services. Diabetes may be a medical condition related to your blood sugar, but it can also be destructive to your eyes and vision. If you have diabetes, it can damage the blood vessels and causing bleeding inside the retina, a condition known as diabetic retinopathy.
At South Bay Retina, Dr. Narain can detect the early onset of diabetic disease in the eye with a comprehensive eye exam.
How Do I Treat or Care for Diabetes Affected Eyes?
If you have diabetes, you are already aware of the special meals and medications that are required for maintaining your health. But have you considered how you should take care of your vision when you have diabetes? If not, now is the time to start.
Here at South Bay Retina, Dr. Narain recommends regularly scheduled eye exams if you are diabetic because most patients do not have symptoms at the early stages of diabetic disease. It is important to check and maintain optimal blood sugar levels because high glucose levels can cause damage to the blood vessels in the eye. This may cause bleeding and blurry vision in diabetic patients.
