Diabetic Eye Care

What is Diabetic Retinopathy?

Over time, diabetes can damage the tiny blood vessels in your eyes. This can lead to a condition called diabetic retinopathy. Often there are no noticeable symptoms indicating this disease. Also, diabetes can increase the probability of developing  cataracts and glaucoma. Early detection and treatment of diabetic retinopathy can reduce the risk of blindness by 95 percent. We recommend you see your Doctor at the Family Eye Care Center & Optical Gallery  at least once a year for a dilated eye exam.
