Comprehensive Diabetic Eye Exams

Diabetes is one of the leading causes of blindness in the Western world. It can have a significant impact on your eye health and increases the risk of developing a number of sight threatening eye problems. Diabetics are at higher risk of diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma and cataracts.

It is recommended that diabetic patients have annual dilated eye examinations to detect and manage diabetic eye disease early.

During your routine diabetic eye health check the Optometrist will dilate your pupils. This will allow them to thoroughly assess your retina to check for signs of diabetic retinopathy.

Give us a call if you have any questions about the effects of diabetes on your eye health or would like to book in for your annual diabetic eye health check.
