Diabetic Eye Care

Diabetic retinopathy is the most common diabetic eye disease and a leading cause of blindness in American adults. It is caused by changes in the blood vessels of the retina. In this condition, blood vessels are weakened, can swell, and leak fluid in to the retina.  This can cause hemorrhages or unwanted blood vessels to grow on the surface of the retina.  A healthy retina is required for good vision.  Infinite Eye Care has special tools for monitoring and grading the level of concern we need to have about how diabetic retinopathy pertains to your vision. 

 

If you have diabetic retinopathy, you may not initially notice changes to your vision, but over time it can get worse and cause vision loss to both eyes.  The American Diabetes Association recommends that you have your eyes examined with a dilated eye health exam at least once a year by an eye care professional.  This allows us to preserve your vision and also determine if you could have complications to your hands, feet or kidneys.
