Diabetic Eye Disease is the Leading Cause of Blindness Among Adults
It occurs when small blood vessels in the retina weaken and leak, or when abnormal blood vessels grow in the retina. The result is impaired vision and, potentially, blindness.
Anyone with Diabetes is at Risk for Diabetic Eye Disease
But often there are no symptoms until the disease is advanced. For that reason, we recommend that anyone with – or at risk for – diabetes have a comprehensive, eye examination at least once a year. Regular eye exams help monitor symptoms of diabetic eye diseases. Early detection and treatment are the key to maintaining healthy vision. November is Diabetes Eye Disease Awareness Month! Do your eyes a favor and schedule an eye exam today.
