If you have diabetes you probably already know that you need to have periodic eye exams to make sure that you are not developing any vision problems related to diabetes. For this reason it is recommended that patients with diabetes come in to our eye care practice on a periodic basis to make sure they are not developing any signs of diabetic retinopathy or other eye diseases. Diabetic retinopathy is a serious eye disease that is caused by elevated levels of blood sugar. If you would like to come to our Somerset Hills Eye Care Center for diabetic eye testing by our ophthalmologist, contact us today. When you have diabetes you want to make sure that you consistently receive Green Knoll eye care, on a timeframe as recommended for you by our ophthalmologist.
At our eye care practice, our expert ophthalmologist is Dr. Timothy P. Sullivan. Dr. Sullivan is board-certified by the American Academy of ophthalmology. He has been consistently voted a “top ophthalmologist in New Jersey.” Many patients come to our eye care practice for comprehensive eye exams, contact lens exams and fittings, and treatment of specific eye diseases, including treatment incorporating eye surgery. We encourage our diabetic patients to come in on a regular basis for Green Knoll eye care, which includes screening for diabetic retinopathy. Diabetic retinopathy affects the blood vessels that surround the retina, and can cause serious and permanent vision problems if allowed to go untreated.
Patients with diabetes may also be more likely to develop other eye problems including cataracts and glaucoma. Diabetic retinopathy is a serious complication resulting from patients having elevated blood sugar levels. This creates abnormal blood vessels to form around the eyes. This keeps the retina from being able to be properly nourished by the blood vessels. The blood vessels may even burst causing immediate vision problems. When patients come in for a diabetic eye exam our eye doctor will perform a comprehensive eye exam that will include testing for many different eye diseases and disorders including diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma, and cataracts. The area around your retina will be carefully examined to make sure that there are no abnormalities developing in your blood vessels. Diabetic retinopathy does not have a cure and it is best avoided by making sure that your blood sugar levels stay low. For exceptional Green Knoll eye care, make an appointment at our office to see Dr. Sullivan.
