Diabetic Retinopathy

Here at Adam’s Eyecare we specialize in providing the best possible eye care we can. While there are many eye diseases and conditions out there that can affect your vision and retina, diabetic retinopathy can cause you to experience blurred vision and even floaters which one may experience with an ocular migraine. Diabetic retinopathy is a diabetes complication or blood sugar issue that can affect your eyes. It is caused by deteriorating the blood vessels of the light-sensitive tissue at the back of your eye, known as the “retina”.

 At first, diabetic retinopathy may cause no symptoms at all, or only minor vision problems. If diabetic retinopathy is not caught early on, it can cause decreased vision such as blurred or occasional double vision. This is commonly tested when we perform a dilated eye examination on you, or if you may have type 1 or 2 diabetes, just to make sure we can catch and treat this eye condition early on so your vision does not have to suffer. If we can not treat this condition to the best of your ability, we may refer you to a specialist who can best help you.
