Diabetes & Your Eyes
Although it’s a systemic disease, diabetes can often first be identified and diagnosed during a comprehensive eye exam. Diabetes can also increase your chances of developing a number of serious eye diseases and conditions such as cataracts, glaucoma, and diabetic retinopathy.
Diabetic Eye Exams
Diabetic eyes require special care and attention, which is why Oakland Vision Center Optometry offers eye exams specifically tailored to the needs of our diabetic patients. Individuals with both Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes should see their optometrist at least once per year, even if they are not currently experiencing any problems with their health or vision.
