Diabetes is the fastest-growing cause of blindness in America. If you have diabetes, annual eye examinations are especially important.
The eye is the only place in the entire body where we can directly view the blood vessels. As part of our evaluation, you will see a digital photograph of the blood vessels in the back of your eyes.
We will correspond with your diabetes doctor to let him/her know that your eyes were evaluated for signs of diabetes. We will share the results with you immediately, and let you know if any further treatment is needed.
