Patients who have diabetes are very susceptible to other health issues. Diabetes affects other parts of the body such as the eyes. Diabetic retinopathy is a disease that diabetes patients need to be checked for by a professional eye doctor at a quality Bucks County diabetic eye care practice. Diabetic retinopathy can be detected through a dilated eye exam.
Our Bucks County diabetic eye care practice provides eye exams that check for not only refraction errors but also for eye diseases and conditions. Diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma, cataracts are among the eye diseases and conditions that can be detected during a thorough eye exam at IC Laser Eye Care. These regular eye exams are invaluable tools in maintaining good eye health by detecting and helping to prevent diseases in patients of all ages. The comprehensive eye exam typically includes but isn’t limited to: a slit lamp test, a dilated eye exam, refraction for eyeglasses and contact lenses and a glaucoma pressure testing. There are many eye diseases and conditions that present with no signs early on. The only way to detect them early is by getting a thorough eye exam done by a professional eye doctor like ours at IC Laser Eye Care. Early detection of any problems will help reduce the risk of further harm and will allow for more treatment options. It’s crucial that you get eye exams done more frequently if you have diabetes. Since every person’s specific circumstances are unique, you should ask your eye doctor how often you should get your eye exams done. We also offer many other high quality optical services. We offer contact lens exams and fittings. We have a wonderful selection of eye care products in our optical department.
