Navigating diabetic eye disease requires specialized attention, and Vision I Care is here to provide comprehensive solutions. Explore our tailored approach to managing diabetic eye conditions and preserving your vision.

Understanding Diabetic Eye Disease

Diabetic eye disease encompasses a group of eye conditions that affect individuals with diabetes, including diabetic retinopathy, diabetic macular edema, cataracts, and glaucoma.

  • Uncontrolled blood sugar levels.
  • Duration of diabetes.
  • Hypertension.
  • Genetics.

At Vision i Care, we specialize in the comprehensive management of diabetic retinopathy. Our treatment approaches may include vitrectomy, a procedure involving the replacement of the inner gel-like substance supporting the eyeball structure. Laser surgery is another viable option to address specific issues associated with diabetic retinopathy.

  • Diabetic Eye Exams: Our optometrists conduct specialized eye exams to detect and monitor diabetic eye disease in its early stages.
  • Personalized Treatment Plans: Benefit from personalized treatment plans tailored to address specific diabetic eye conditions and manage their progression.
  • Collaborative Care: We work closely with your diabetes care team to ensure seamless coordination and comprehensive care for your eyes.
  • Diagnosed with Diabetes: If you have diabetes, regular diabetic eye exams are crucial for early detection and management of eye-related complications.
  • Family History: Individuals with a family history of diabetes or diabetic eye disease should consider proactive eye exams to monitor their eye health.
  • Visual Changes: Experiencing changes in vision, such as blurriness or difficulty seeing, may indicate diabetic eye disease and warrants immediate attention.

Risk Factors and Vigilance

Whether you have type 1, type 2, or gestational diabetes, you are susceptible to diabetic retinopathy, with an escalating risk based on the duration of the disease. Maintaining strict control over blood sugar levels is crucial to prevent vision loss, necessitating regular consultations with your primary care physician.
