Diabetic Eye Health Examination

Diabetic Retinopathy

Diabetes is the seventh leading cause of death in the United States and is a leading cause of blindness in the US. Diabetes can and will affect the quality of your vision due to risk for formation of cataracts, glaucoma and retinopathy. It is highly recommended by the American Optometric Association that patients diagnosed with Diabetes get an annual dilated eye exam by an optometrist or ophthalmologist. Many eye problems are silent until they are advanced, but early detection and treatment truly saves vision. In addition, Dr. Sukon provides a comprehensive ocular health report to your physician to maintain continuity of care between your health care providers.
