Diabetic Eye Disease Awareness

 

Diabetic eye disease encompasses a number of eye diseases that may impact individuals who have been diagnosed with diabetes. These can include diseases such as cataracts, diabetic retinopathy, and glaucoma.  Diabetic eye disease is a common condition for diabetics. It is the leading cause of blindness in American adults, yet in its early stages there are little to no symptoms.

Early diagnosis and treatment help reduce the risk of vision loss, making regular eye exams essential for managing diabetes.

The doctors at Primary Eyecare in Charlottesville use the latest technology to diagnose and monitor patients for diabetic eye disease, as well as cataracts, glaucoma and macular degeneration.
