Diabetic Eye Disease Treatment in Latrobe, PA
Peters Eye Clinic Offers Care to Treat Diabetic Retinopathy and More
For diabetic eye disease treatment in Latrobe, PA and surrounding areas, rely on Peters Eye Clinic. Diabetes is an extremely debilitating disease, adversely affecting the kidneys, nerves, and other body parts and increasing the risk of heart attack and stroke. Eye conditions relating to diabetes, such as retinopathy, macular edema, cataracts, and glaucoma can arise.
These conditions can severely harm the eyes, but the damage may not be noticeable until it is too late. Regular eye exams by an ophthalmologist, however, will detect problems earlier, and promote effective treatment.
Why Do Patients with Diabetes Need Diabetic Eye Exams?
Diabetic patients are subject to a condition called diabetic retinopathy, which affects the blood vessels in their retinas. Only regular diabetic eye exams every year will detect this condition early, as it will not cause vision changes at first. However, as it progresses, blurry vision or double vision will occur, alongside floaters or dark spots, pressure or pain, peripheral vision issues, and flashing lights. Treatment will help if caught early enough.
Diabetics are also at increased risk for cataracts and glaucoma, so diabetic eye exams are vital.
