Your Vision & Health Are Linked
Diabetes is one of the most common health conditions in our country, and it can have long-term effects on your eye health. If you have diabetes, we typically recommend annual eye exams.
Frequent exams help detect early signs of eye problems, allowing us to manage them and help preserve your vision.

What Is Diabetes?
Diabetes is a systemic health condition that affects how your body uses or produces insulin. Insulin is a key hormone that allows glucose to enter your cells.
If your body isn’t producing enough insulin or isn’t using it properly, it can lead to high blood sugar. High blood sugar can damage many organs in your body, especially your heart, kidneys, and eyes.
Doctors have found that the cause of diabetes varies from person to person, but genetics, certain lifestyle choices, and your environment can increase your risk of developing it.
How We Examine Your Eyes
Zeiss Cirrus OCT
Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a special ultrasound-like technology we use to get detailed, cross-sectional images of your retina. Using only light rays, OCT helps us determine your retina’s thickness, differentiate its layers, and search for many eye diseases that can cause vision loss, such as age-related macular degeneration.
