Diabetes Affects Your Vision

Diabetes affects your body in many different ways and can impact your eyes and vision health. Patients with diabetes can develop diabetic eye disease, which includes a wide variety of issues that stem from diabetes.

It is strongly recommended that patients with diabetes undergo a comprehensive diabetic eye exam at least once per year.

Increased Risks with Diabetes

Diabetic patients have a higher risk of developing:

Most eye diseases associated with diabetes develop slowly over time, and can not exhibit any noticeable symptoms until damage has already occurred. This is why individuals with diabetes should undergo regular eye exams. It is essential that your optometrist detects issues before they become problems.

How We Assess Your Eye Health

As part of your diabetic eye exam at Queensway Optometric Centre, we will conduct a dilated fundus exam. During this exam, your pupils will be dilated so we can better assess your lens, retina, optic nerve, blood vessels, and other eye features.

We will use a specialized camera to take a picture of your fundus. We may also conduct a non-invasive imaging test called optical coherence tomography (OCT), which takes cross-sectional images of your retina.
