Diabetes & Your Eye Health

Patients who have Type 1, Type 2, gestational, or borderline diabetes are particularly susceptible to a range of eye diseases that can occur when there is higher than usual blood glucose levels.

That’s why at Alluminate Eyecare, we conduct rigorous and thorough diabetic eye exams in order to detect issues before they lead to irreversible vision loss.

Diabetic Eye Diseases

Although there are a number of eye diseases, that can result due to diabetic complications, the following are the most common and often the most serious:

When high blood glucose levels damage the blood vessels in the retina, they can swell and leak blood or fluid into the retina, in a condition called diabetic retinopathy. If not detected, diagnosed, and treated early, it can lead to serious loss of vision. However, with early detection, timely treatment, and appropriate follow-up care, studies show there is a 95% reduced risk of vision loss.

Diabetic macular edema develops when fluid builds up in the macula, the part of the retina responsible for central vision, and causes swelling and blurry vision. If untreated, diabetic macular edema can lead to permanent vision loss.

Our Exam Process

Our diabetic eye exams are thorough and comprehensive. However, we add an extra layer of testing, administering pupil dilation to gain a wider perspective of your eyes.

Unless otherwise recommended, it is imperative that you arrange a diabetic eye exam annually.

At Alluminate Eyecare, we take technology to the next level.

Our modern imaging technology uses robotic movements to provide advanced views of the central and peripheral retina. The result? High resolution images that offer more accurate diabetic diagnostic and monitoring solutions for you.
