Protect your eyes with regular diabetic eye care

Diabetes can cause a variety of eye diseases that can affect your vision, including diabetic retinopathy, cataracts, and glaucoma. In fact, blurred vision is one of the first warning signs of diabetes for many people. Because of this, it is extremely important to have a yearly dilated eye exam so that problems can be detected early, leading to more promising treatment outcomes where necessary.

Ways for diabetic patients to decrease the chance of eye disease include:

  • Have a dilated eye exam once a year
  • Control blood sugar, blood pressure, and cholesterol levels
  • Exercise regularly
  • Do not smoke
