What is Diabetic Retinopathy (DR)?

Sometimes, if your blood sugar level is too high, the blood vessels in your retina can be damaged.  Among adults, 40 years or older with diabetes, a study found about 25% of these individuals had a serious eye condition that could cause loss of vision.  Today DR is the leading cause of vision loss among working age adults who are diabetic.  We are here to help if you have questions or concerns! 

Eye Care & Your Health:

If you have noticed a change in the quality of your vision, it is important to intervene early.  Take the time to make an appointment so we can give you a thorough exam.  Many times, the early symptoms of diabetic retinopathy go unnoticed.  Some symptoms, such as blurriness or floaters, may signal the need for regular eye exams.
