Diabetes Eyecare Information

Diabetes may cause complications in our eyes. Presented here is detailed information about how eye complications may arise, how eye complications may be treated and how eye complications may be avoided.

Dr. Hall has a special interest in diabetes. It is his goal to help ensure a lifetime of good vision through regular dilated eye exams and communication with your diabetes doctor.

Managing your diabetes is a task that you share with your physician. Documented information about the potential complications of poorly controlled blood sugars was scant until the results of the now landmark study known as The Diabetes Control and Complications Trial (DCCT) became published. The DCCT was an intensive study by scientists and physicians in the U.S. and Canada from 1983 to 1993 to study diabetes and the complications poorly controlled blood sugars may bring.

One of the well known eye complications is diabetic retinopathy. Diabetic retinopathy will develop with poorly controlled diabetes. These changes to the eye are a result of the blood vessels leaking on the back of our eyes in the special sensory tissue called the retina. Untreated swelling of the retinal tissue may lead to permanent decreased vision or blindness. Through regular dilated eye examinations and reports to your physician you can expect a lifetime of good vision and healthy eyes.

The links below provide information about common concerns regarding changes to your eyes that may occur with diabetes.
