Diabetic Eye

Diabetic Eye Disease encompasses a group of eye conditions that people can face as a result of complications from their diabetes. All of these conditions, if not diagnosed and treated, can cause severe vision loss or even blindness.

The 3 major eye problems include:

  • Diabetic Retinopathy which is damage to the blood vessels of the retina
  • Cataracts which are clouding of the lens’ in the eyes
  • Glaucoma which is increased fluid pressure inside the eye leading to optic nerve damage

Diabetic Eye

Diabetic Retinopathy is the most common diabetic eye disease and one of the leading causes of blindness in adults. Close to 45% of people in the U.S. diagnosed with diabetes have some stage of diabetic retinopathy. The retina is the light-sensitive tissue located in the back of the eyes. A healthy retina is essential for good vision. Diabetic retinopathy is when changes occur that damage the blood vessels of the retina. They may swell and leak fluid, or new abnormal blood vessels can grow on the surface of the retina. During the early stages of diabetic retinopathy you may notice changes to your vision, and over time, your vision can get worse and could eventually lead to blindness.

The key to identifying Diabetic Eye Disease and preventing vision loss is early detection, routine eye exams, and treatment using our state-of-the-art technology and equipment. A leader in this field, Board-Certified Ophthalmologist Dr. Richard Adler can diagnosis and treat diabetic retinopathy, helping to prevent its progression.
