About Diabetic Retinopathy
Diabetes can damage your eye in many ways. The retina is the part of the eye most commonly affected; this is called diabetic retinopathy. Often, the early changes to your vision go unnoticed. That is why an accurate diagnosis, at the earliest possible stage, is important. The damage that can result from diabetic retinopathy can be caught early with sophisticated imaging technology. Your doctor can detect swelling, leaky, or blocked blood vessels as well as the growth of new, abnormal blood vessels before symptoms occur. Depending on the severity of your disease, we may monitor your condition or recommend a treatment that best meets your needs. We work closely with you and your diabetes specialists to help you reduce your risk for vision loss and keep your eyes as healthy as possible.
