Diabetic Eye Care at Maine Optometry
Diabetes can affect all areas of your health, but it has an outsized effect on your vision. That’s why our team at Maine Optometry pays special attention to our patients with diabetes in order to keep them seeing clearly for years to come.
What Is a Diabetic Eye Exam?
Our comprehensive eye exams give us a thorough picture of your eyes, but we offer diabetic eye exams for people with diabetes, with extra attention focused on the wellness of their retinas. These exams have a specific focus on how diabetes impacts certain parts of your eye, like the blood vessels. Using advanced technology, like optical coherence tomography (OCT) and Optos retinal imaging, as well as specialty tests like visual evoked potentials (VEP), we get a detailed view of your inner eye and monitor any changes between visits.
Why Is a Diabetic Eye Exam Important?
A serious complication of diabetes that can have lasting effects on your eyes and vision is diabetic retinopathy, which doesn’t always have noticeable symptoms in its early stages. However, our cutting-edge tools and experienced diabetic eye doctors are able to spot the signs of diabetic retinopathy long before it can diminish your vision, making regular checkups essential for diabetic patients.
