Diabetes Ophthalmology

Diabetes Ophthalmology is a diabetic eye disease. Diabetic eye disease is a group of eye problems that can affect people having diabetes. These circumstances include diabetic retinopathy, diabetic macular enema, cataracts, and glaucoma. Over time, diabetes can cause damage to your eyes that can lead to very poor vision or even blindness. But you can take steps to prevent diabetic eye disease, or keep it from getting poorer, by taking care of your diabetes.

The best ways to manage your diabetes and keep your eyes healthy are to:

  • Manage your blood glucose, blood pressure, and cholesterol, sometimes called the diabetes ABCs
  • If you smoke, get help to quit smoking

Have a dilated eye exam once a year
