Diabetic Awareness Month
Are you Diabetic? Has your doctor advised that you see a skilled eye physician at least once a year? That is important advice to follow. Diabetic eye disease refers to the large variety of conditions people with diabetes may face, and that can threaten their vision. These issues can include diseases such as cataract, diabetic retinopathy, and glaucoma. A Diabetic eye exam can also give you greater insight into your general health, and be a vital part of a strong preventative care program.
Most diabetic eye diseases do not have early symptoms, so it is important for anyone with Diabetes to be aware of the risks of developing a disease and the ways to prevent them. Working with your doctor to maintain blood sugar levels and getting a comprehensive eye exam once a year can help prevent eye disease. That routine doctor care paired with the annual medical eye exam will help protect your precious vision, and also keep your condition under control, by catching any changes early.
