Diebetes can lead to diabetic retinopathy and eventual vision loss if not treated and managed properly. Eye exams are an important part of your care for diabetes and at Eyeworks we are working closely with your primary care provider to prevent vision loss.
At Eyeworks we are using the latest in technology to monitor your retinal health. Your optometrist often are the first to detect changes in your diebetes. Retinal imaging such as the Optos and dialated exams are important to monitoring changes to your retinal health. During your eye exam we are able to see your blood vessels and detect changes. Treatment of your diabetes is important to maintain good vision. Diet and excercise are key important factors in diebetic managment.
Diabetes in your family or concerned about macular degeneration?
An evaluation of the retina is an important part of a comprehensive eye exam. In addition to a dilated exam, the Optomap® retinal exam allows doctors to take a state-of-the-art picture of each patient's retina (the back of the eye). This picture allows the doctor to evaluate the eye for ocular diseases, as well detect problems in the patient's overall health, such as hypertension or diabetes. Recently, the Joslin Diabetes Center in Boston announced that it considers the Optomap to be the gold standard for evaluation of diabetic retinopathy.
