Diabetes Can Affect Your Eye Health & Vision

Diabetes can be a life-changing diagnosis. Not only can this condition affect different aspects of your overall health, but it can also increase your risk for various eye diseases and other serious ocular conditions. Because of this, the CDC and a variety of reputable optometric resources all recommend patients with diabetes to have their eyes examined annually.

Eye exams can also detect signs of diabetes, even if you are unaware that you may have the disease.

Book your appointment today and safeguard your eyes from complications caused by diabetes.

Diabetes & Eye Disease

Diabetes is a systemic disease that impacts how your body processes glucose (sugar). When there is too much glucose in your bloodstream, it can cause complications with your heart, teeth, and eyes.

Diabetes increases your chance of developing eye diseases, including:

  • Diabetic retinopathy – Diabetic retinopathy occurs when the blood vessels in your retina become damaged or blocked due to higher amounts of sugar in your bloodstream. This can cause the vessels to leak or bulge, permanently damaging your vision.
  • Open-angle glaucoma – Open-angle glaucoma is one of the most common eye diseases, and the chances of developing this disease double in patients with diabetes.
  • Diabetic macular edema – Diabetic macular edema (DME) forms when diabetic retinopathy is not addressed. When the blood vessels in the retina swell and leak, they can cause the macula to swell as well. This swelling can severely damage the macula, causing blindness.

Diabetes can also increase your risk of developing other conditions that can compromise your vision, such as cataracts.

The Diabetic Eye Exam

During your diabetic eye exam, we’ll thoroughly check your eyes for signs of disease or other potential problems using a variety of tools and techniques. Some of the tools we’ll use may include:

A fundus camera can take detailed color photographs of the interior of your eye, allowing your optometrist to examine your optic disc, macula, retina, and vascular system. With these images, your optometrist can detect signs of diabetic retinopathy and DME.

Optical coherence tomography (OCT) scans capture cross-sectional images using light. Your optometrist can then assess the health of the vascular system behind your retina and detect signs of diabetic retinopathy and DME.

A visual field test is a way for your eye care professional to determine how wide your field of view is when you are focused on a central point. This test can help determine if eye disease has resulted in blind spots in your vision.
