At Eye Surgeons Associates, we provide outstanding diabetic eye care services to residents of Memphis, TN. Read on to learn more about the importance of diabetic eye exams and the conditions they help our eye doctor diagnose.
Regular Eye Exams
Optometrists agree that yearly eye exams are essential for everyone, especially for people living with diabetes. With annual eye exams, our eye surgeons can spot problems early on in development and prevent them from progressing.
Diabetic retinopathy is a condition that affects your eye health due to uncontrolled glucose levels from diabetes. Our eye doctor recommends you schedule regular exams to closely monitor your blood sugar levels to help manage your diabetes, and preserve vision and eye health. If diabetic retinopathy is affecting your daily life, our eye surgeons in Canton or Monroe may suggest laser procedures, such as laser photocoagulation, vitrectomy, or injecting medicine into your eye, to help stop the progression.
Monitoring Blood Sugar
Your blood sugar levels have a direct impact on your eyes and vision. We can help you find ways, such as changing your diet, to manage your glucose levels and prevent the risk of diabetic eye disease.
