Having a diabetes diagnosis can cause stress for individuals in Western PA and their families. What many people do not realize is that diabetes not only effects the pancreas, but it typically effects vision, as well. One of the most common diabetic eye diseases is diabetic retinopathy, which is caused by damage to blood vessels in the retina due to diabetes.
Diabetics should schedule appointments to have their retinas examined for damage by Jerome A. Peters, M.D. in Mount Pleasant, PA. One prominent test includes dilating a patient’s pupils and examining throughout the back of the eye, including blood vessels, the retina, and the optic nerve. This procedure allows for prompt diagnosis and treatment. To schedule a diabetic retinopathy exam with our ophthalmologist, call Peters Eye Clinic in Mount Pleasant today at (724) 547-2800.
Frequent Appointments for Patients with Diabetic Macular Edema
Our ophthalmologist recommends frequent evaluation appointments for clients with diabetic macular edema. It is important to understand some of the results of having pupils dilated during a routine appointment. One thing to keep in mind is that vision will likely stay blurry for several hours after an appointment and patients should arrange a ride home in advance. These appointments can also make individuals light-sensitive for that same timespan, so it is a good idea to bring sunglasses, as well. To schedule appointments for diabetic vision evaluations, call Peters Eye Clinic in Mount Pleasant, PA.
