Patients with diabetes are very susceptible to other health problems because diabetes can affect other parts of the body such as the eyes. This is why it’s so important for individuals to get a regular diabetic eye screening in Las Vegas by a professional eye doctor at a quality practice.
Diabetic retinopathy is the number one reason why it’s so important for diabetic patients to see their optometrist for frequent, regular eye exams. The eye doctor can look for changes to the blood vessels of the retina that indicate diabetic retinopathy, a very common problem among diabetic patients. The condition develops when there is prolonged exposure to high glucose levels which weakens the walls of the blood vessels in the eyes. The condition can be detected through a dilated eye exam or digital retinal photographs. If you’re due for a diabetic eye exam, we highly suggest that you make an appointment with our Las Vegas optometrist as soon as you can.
