Treatment Details

What is Diabetic Eye Disease Management?

Individuals with diabetes are at a higher risk for specific eye conditions. A lack of sugar in the bloodstream can damage blood vessels and ultimately damage the eye. We recommend that individuals with diabetes visit their ophthalmologist annually to monitor and treat any eye diseases. Many diabetics are at risk for diabetic retinopathy, which is a very serious diabetic eye disease. They are also at an increased risk for diabetic macular edema, cataracts, and glaucoma.

Many eye diseases, like diabetic retinopathy, show no symptoms in the early stages. That’s why it’s important that individuals with diabetes visit the eye doctor regularly.

Diabetic Retinopathy


What is Diabetic Retinopathy?

Individuals suffering from diabetes, whether diagnosed or not, are at a high risk of developing diabetic retinopathy. This condition can damage your vision permanently.

In this condition, high blood sugar levels – which are seen in individuals with diabetes – cause damage to the blood vessels. The blood vessels located in the retina can swell and become damaged. In some cases, they can weaken so much so that they leak. In other cases, the blood vessels begin to close. When this happens it limits the amount of blood that gets to the retina, leading to changes in vision and, in severe cases, blindness.

What To Expect

How is Diabetic Retinopathy Treated?

If you have diabetes, the first step is to work with your primary care or diabetes doctor to get the condition under control through medication and diet. It is then important to monitor your eye health for signs of damage directly related to this condition.

When you do come to our office, we’ll discuss the options for treatment. In some cases, surgery and other treatments may be the best option. Laser surgery, for example, can help to improve vision loss by treating the swelling in the retina. It is not possible to cure diabetic retinopathy, however, treatments are available to slow the progression of it and potentially preserve your vision.

Diabetic eye disease is a group of eye conditions that can affect people with diabetes. These conditions may include diabetic retinopathy, diabetic macular edema, cataracts, and glaucoma. Over time, uncontrolled diabetes can damage the blood vessels in the eyes, leading to vision problems and potential blindness.

Diabetic eye disease management typically involves a combination of regular eye exams, blood sugar control, lifestyle adjustments, and, in some cases, medical or surgical interventions. Your eye care specialist will tailor a management plan to your specific needs based on the severity of your condition.

While diabetic eye disease cannot always be entirely prevented, you can significantly reduce your risk by controlling your blood sugar levels, maintaining a healthy lifestyle, and attending regular eye exams. Early detection and treatment are crucial in minimizing the impact of the disease on your vision.

The symptoms of diabetic eye disease may vary depending on the specific condition. Common symptoms can include blurry or distorted vision, dark spots or floaters, difficulty seeing at night, and a gradual loss of vision. Regular eye exams are essential for early detection of these symptoms.

In some cases, early intervention and proper management can improve or stabilize your vision. However, once diabetic eye disease progresses to advanced stages, vision loss may become irreversible. Early detection and treatment play a crucial role in preserving vision.

Medication is not always necessary for managing diabetic eye disease. Lifestyle changes, blood sugar control, and close monitoring of your condition can often be effective in maintaining eye health
