Diabetes & Glaucoma
You Need Regular Eye Exams. Even if the doctor who takes care of your diabetes checks your eyes, you need an eye exam every 1-2 years by an eye doctor who takes care of people with diabetes.
One of the most common diabetic eye diseases is diabetic macular edema (DME). Because DME often doesn’t show warning signs in its early stages, it’s critical for people with diabetes to get a retina eye exam each year. It lets your eye doctor see if there is damage in the back of your eyes. If there is damage, your eye doctor can recommend treatments that may help.
Diabetes can harm your eyes. It can damage the small blood vessels in your retina, or the back of your eye. This is called diabetic retinopathy.
Diabetes also increases your risk of glaucoma and other eye problems.
You may not know your eyes are harmed until the problem is very bad. Your doctor can catch problems early if you get regular eye exams.
