Tech Focus: Diabetic Retinopathy

At Ft. Lauderdale Eye Associates, a comprehensive eye exam can check for diabetic retinopathy, which is a serious eye condition related to diabetes.

Through extended periods of high blood sugar, one can lead to diabetic retinopathy, which also increases the risk for cataracts and glaucoma.

It is important to raise awareness with your loved ones about the need to have a comprehensive eye exam at least once a year. This is vital as there are often no noticeable warning signs for vision problems such as diabetic retinopathy.

Diabetic retinopathy is caused by damage to the blood vessels of the retina. Because of the lack of awareness and unhealthy eating habits, diabetic retinopathy has become the leading cause of blindness in working-age Americans.
 
For more information about symptoms & testing, schedule an eye exam with our doctor today.
