Keep Your Eyes Healthy
If you’re someone with diabetes, you’re likely familiar with your increased risk of diabetic eye disease. Over time, diabetes can cause damage to your eyes that can affect your vision and overall health. Having your optometrist evaluate your eyes regularly can ensure any early signs of eye disease are spotted before they cause permanent damage.
At Diablo Valley Optometric Group, protecting your vision and ocular health is our top priority. We want to give you all the information you need about diabetes to subsequently keep your eyes healthy.
In some cases, your optometrist may be able to detect signs of diabetes before an official diagnosis. Diabetes affects the blood vessels, and your eye is the only place in the body where a doctor can see them directly.
When you have your eyes examined regularly, your optometrist can monitor any changes in your ocular health, including early signs of diabetes. Book your annual appointment today!
