Bedminster diabetic eye care
In the United States, diabetes is the leading cause of blindness in people over the age of 65. While diabetes can cause cataracts and glaucoma, it can also affect the blood circulation to your eye and can cause the devastating eye diseases known as Diabetic Retinopathy. Often, one may not be aware of any symptoms even when significant diabetic retinopathy is present, so it is important to visit Somerset Hills Eye Care Center for Bedminster diabetic eye care and screenings as an eye exam is the only means of detecting Diabetic Retinopathy.
Patients with diabetes are more likely to develop eye problems. However, diabetics can significantly reduce eye complications with annual eye exams to evaluate and monitor their retinal health. At Somerset Hills Eye Care Center, as part of your Bedminster diabetic eye care, we will perform a comprehensive eye exam and diabetic screening which includes a visual acuity test, pupil dilation, and careful examination of your retina. After the pupil is dilated, a device is used to view the retina and determine the extent of the retinopathy. Our optometrist may administer a fluorescein dye test as part of our diabetic screening, where an injection of dye into a vein in the arm is followed by several minutes of retinal photos being taken. This creates a detailed cross-sectional image of the eye, allowing our optometrist to better determine the extent of your retinopathy. However, the best therapy for diabetic retinopathy, as with most optical ailments, is prevention. Studies show that strict control of blood sugar levels can significantly lower the risk of vision loss from Diabetic Retinopathy.
If you are experiencing blurred vision to any extent, or notice small specks or large floaters obscuring your vision, especially if you are diabetic, is it vital to your optical and overall health that you contact Somerset Hills Eye Care Center for comprehensive eye exams and Bedminster diabetic eye care. Diabetic Retinopathy is the leading cause of blindness in working-age adults, but it can easily be prevented by calling and scheduling an appointment with us today.

Taking care of your eye health is important. Not many people may realize just how important eye health and eye exams are to their overall health, however, especially if they have no latent eye issues or vision problems. Even if this is the case, anyone can still develop an eye disease or condition and the best way to help treat and prevent such things is by monitoring your eye health. This especially goes for patients who have diabetes. Here at Somerset Hills Eye Care Center, our eye care team can provide Bedminster diabetic eye care that will help treat eye diseases and prevent vision loss in patients living with diabetes.
Even though eye problems can manifest in anyone of any medical history or family background, patients who already live with diabetes are inherently at a greater risk for developing eye diseases than other people. Diabetes is already a condition that requires constant monitoring of symptoms, but in order to get the best possible comprehensive care is to make sure that you include eye exams as well. Patients who have diabetes are not only at a greater risk for developing conditions such as glaucoma, but they are also at greater risk for developing more complicated versions of such diseases and are even at risk for diabetes specific conditions such as diabetic retinopathy. Annual visits, if not more, with our eye doctors here at Somerset Hills Eye Care Center can help patients with diabetes monitor their eye health on a regular basis. Bedminster diabetic eye care with our eye doctors will aim to provide thorough eye exams and screening, accurate diagnoses and comprehensive treatment options for all diabetic patients.
Eye diseases can be scary, especially since conditions such as glaucoma may not exhibit noticeable symptoms to the patient during its earlier stages. In order to identify and properly care for such diseases, regular eye care is necessary, especially for patients with diabetes who are at a greater risk of developing them. If you are a diabetic patient in Bedminster, diabetic eye care here with us at Somerset Hills Eye Care Center can help provide you with the comprehensive treatment that you need.
