Diabetic Care

A potential complication of having diabetes is developing diabetic eye disease — a group of eye conditions that include diabetic retinopathy, diabetic macular edema, cataracts, and glaucoma. Diabetic eye disease can cause vision loss and blindness but often goes unnoticed until vision is affected. Early detection and treatment is essential to protect against vision loss.  People with diabetes should have a comprehensive dilated eye exam at least once a year.
