Diabetic Retinopathy is a condition where damage occurs to the back of the eye a the microscopic level. In diabetes, the retina provides a window to the status of your vessels because it can be visualized and directly examined.
Diabetic Retinopathy begins insidiously with normal vision and can remain that way until it causes severe irreversible damage. Consequently, screening eye exams have become the standard of care for all diabetic patients.
Advances in medicine allow us to diagnose this condition much earlier than ever before and discuss the future risk of vision loss. When advanced with significant risk of vision loss, several treatment modalities are available to stabilize vision or recover lost vision.
At Generations Retina, we are proud to provide comprehensive care for diabetic retinopathy from screening exams to specialized medical and surgical treatments. Because prevention is key, we are here to help you improve your eye’s health and avoid such treatments. But when vision is lost, we are also dedicated to help recover as much of it as possible.
Please do NOT wait until diabetes damages your vision! Be proactive, get screened, and preserve your vision!
