We provide dilated eye exams for all diabetics. Diabetes is the number one cause of preventable acquired blindness. People with diabetes should have their eyes dilated every year. We are happy to provide your primary care physician with your exam findings. Remember the best way to prevent diabetic retinopathy is to maintain healthy blood sugar levels.
Retinal photography is a great tool to capture any disorders of the retina. Our office utilizes a camera that can photograph through a non-dilated pupil. Some of the reasons we may recommend a photograph are macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, hypertensive retinopathy, and glaucoma. Retinal photographs can be compared from time to time to evaluate the progression of a disease.
These are just a few examples of the services we provide to our patients.
