Don’t Let Diabetes Dictate

Diabetes is a serious disease that affects all parts of your life, including vision. There is only one way to ensure that diabetic-related eye diseases are being treated early and effectively: regular diabetic eye exams.

2020 EyeCare is a trusted diabetic eye exam center in Loveland. Our eye doctors are experienced in managing diabetic patients and making sure that the first signs of eye disease are diagnosed. A diabetic eye exam is similar to our standard adult eye exams with a focus on ocular health conditions related to diabetes.

Yearly Visits Make the Difference

If you have been diagnosed with diabetes, you should visit our practice annually. Recognizing eye disease early requires regularly scheduled eye exams. Diabetic eye exams will typically require dilating eye drops, so please bring a pair of sunglasses for post-exam eye protection.

Getting to Know the Whole Picture

When it comes to diabetes and ocular health, we don’t want to take any chances. 2020 EyeCare employs the latest diagnostic testing methods to get a clear picture of what’s happening inside and around your eyes.

The fundus is the inside, back surface of the eye that includes the retina and macula. Our advanced fundus photography cameras peer through the pupil to view this area and survey for abnormalities. This digital retinal imaging provides high-definition images of the optic nerve.

Optical Coherence Tomography is a non-invasive way to measure cross-sections of your retina. This allows our optometrists to study the layers inside your eye and identify potential trouble spots. Dilating eye drops will likely be used to open up your pupils for better resolution.

Addressing Key Concerns

Diabetes causes changes in your blood sugar level which can negatively affect how blood vessels in your eyes work. Our diabetic eye exams capture information from the back of your eye to identify eye diseases like glaucoma and AMD. There are some conditions specifically related to people with diabetes.

Increased sugar levels in our blood can block the tiny vessels connected to the retina. Irregular blood flow damages the retina in a profound way, known as diabetic retinopathy. When left untreated, this condition can lead to total vision loss. People with diabetes are high-risk for this condition and must get annual eye exams to view the retina before symptoms are obvious.

The signs of diabetic retinopathy often appear slowly, once the disease has progressed to a dangerous level. These symptoms include:

  • Sudden changes in vision
  • Blurred vision
  • Eye floaters and spots
  • Double vision
  • Eye pain

When the blood vessels in the eye experience irregular pressure, they can leak into the retina.  These leaks can cause swelling in the central part of the retina, known as the macula. This condition, diabetic macular edema, is very dangerous to your eye health and can even lead to vision loss

The best way to monitor diabetic macular edema is with consistent visits to our optometry center. Our greatest advantage in preventing its progress is staying ahead and treating the condition early.
