The Link Between Diabetes & Your Vision

Some patients may be unsure of what diabetes has to do with their vision. When you come in for a diabetic eye exam, we aim to keep you informed throughout the process. Diabetes can increase the risk of developing eye diseases such as cataracts, glaucoma, and diabetic retinopathy, which is the primary vision loss concern for patients with diabetes.

Diabetic retinopathy is a vision condition that is the most common cause of preventable blindness in the United States and occurs when the blood vessels in the retina are damaged. This damage is caused by a buildup of excess sugar in your blood, resulting in too much glucose in your eyes, progressively blocking blood flow.

Early stages of diabetic retinopathy may display no symptoms but some common signs and symptoms can include:

  • Fluctuating vision
  • Blurry vision
  • Spots or floaters in your vision
  • Vision loss

Consistent eye exams can help our team monitor changes in your vision and stay up-to-date with any changes.

Our Diagnostic Technology

At Capital City Vision Center, we use diagnostic technology to assist us in detecting issues and preparing personalized treatment plans to accommodate our patients’ unique visual needs. Our team focuses on the details to ensure your eye health is prioritized.

Optos retinal imaging features a scanning laser that gets a close, detailed look at the retina. Optos retinal imaging is an efficient process that evaluates the retina for issues such as diabetic retinopathy and macular degeneration

This process allows our team to have a large, clear image of your retina to view all the details and monitor any changes.

Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a noninvasive imaging test. This test uses light waves to take detailed cross-section images of the retina. OCT allows our team to see each of the retina’s layers, mapping and measuring them to help with diagnosis and providing treatment guidance and providing treatment guidance for glaucoma, macular degeneration, and diabetic retinopathy.

At Capital City Vision Center, our personalized eye exams focus on early detection and treatment. We recognize that your vision is precious, so we use diagnostic technology to get the complete picture to help preserve your healthy, clear vision.
