Diabetic Eye Exam
The main reason people with diabetes are encouraged to have regular eye exams is to look for changes in the blood vessels of the retina that indicate diabetic retinopathy. Diabetic retinopathy develops as prolonged exposure to high blood glucose weakens the walls of the blood vessels in the eyes. The longer a person has had diabetes and the greater his exposure to high blood glucose, the greater his risk of having this condition.
As part of your diabetic eye exam, Dr Khang Ta will examine your eyes for cataracts, check your intraocular pressures, check your retina for diabetic retinopathy, check your optic nerves for glaucoma and perform a 3-D OCT scan. A comprehensive report will be sent to your doctor, endocrinologist and dietitian.
