What Is Diabetic Eye Care?

Diabetes is known to have an effect on many different aspects of your overall health. It can also have an impact on your eyes and vision. Without proper care, those with diabetes are at risk of ocular issues such as cataracts, glaucoma, macular edema, macular degeneration, and diabetic retinopathy. In more severe cases, it can even lead to vision loss. Whether you have type 1 or 2 diabetes, it's vital to visit an eye specialist who understands the unique eye complications you could face as a diabetic. It is our goal at Sedalia Eye Associates to help you identify, prevent, and manage diabetic eye diseases. For more information on diabetic eye care, including macular degeneration eye evaluations, schedule an appointment with an eye specialist at our Sedalia or Warsaw, MO office today.



How Are Diabetic Eye Conditions Managed?

At Sedalia Eye Associates, our team performs yearly diabetic exams. This can include a number of diagnostic tests to identify and diagnose issues as early on as possible in order to prevent vision loss. When you visit Sedalia Eye Associates, our providers may perform examinations such as eye dilation to evaluate your retinas, tonometry to measure the pressure within your eyes, macular degeneration evaluations, and glaucoma tests. Additionally, we may perform a visual acuity test — this exam helps establish a baseline for your vision. All of this will help us monitor your vision over time. In the event you need treatment for a diabetic-related eye condition, it could include medication, eye injections, laser procedures, and more.
