Why Diabetic Eye Care Matters

Your eyes are windows to your overall health, and when it comes to diabetes, they require extra attention. Diabetic eye exams are crucial in detecting and managing conditions like diabetic retinopathy and other diabetic eye diseases. These conditions can silently damage your vision, but with regular screenings, we can catch them early and take proactive measures. By prioritizing your eye health, Gill Vision Care aims to preserve your vision, prevent complications, and empower you to live life to the fullest.

What is Diabetic Retinopathy?

Diabetic retinopathy occurs when high blood sugar levels damage the blood vessels in the retina, leading to vision impairment or even blindness if left untreated. Recognizing the symptoms of diabetic retinopathy is crucial for early intervention. These may include:

  • Blurred or fluctuating vision
  • Dark spots or specks floating across your visual field
  • Colors may appear faded or less vibrant
  • Vision loss
  • Dark or empty areas in your vision
  • Difficulty seeing at night
  • Eye pain or pressure

If you experience any of these symptoms, it's important to seek prompt medical attention.
