Diabetic Eye Exam Q & A

A diabetic eye exam is a detailed evaluation of the health of your retina and other parts of the eye that can be affected by diabetes. 

Diabetic eye exams can vary in length and scope, depending on the patient's current condition.

The following tests and procedures are commonly performed in most diabetic eye exams:

• Visual Acuity Testing
• Pupil Dilation
• Fundoscopy and/or Fundus Photography
• Ocular Coherence Tomography of the macula
• Color Vision Testing

The doctors at Envy Eye Care will focus on any possible eye health problems that can be caused by diabetes, including:

Diabetic retinopathy
Leading cause of blindness among American adults. Eventually lead to blindness if left untreated. Early detection and treatment can often save part or all of your eyesight. This is the most common eye disease among diabetic patients that affects blood vessels in the retina. Most diabetic patients won’t know if they have diabetic retinopathy until the condition is severe. Having regular eye exams are crucial to prevent worsening vision and protect eye health.

Diabetic Macular Edema (DME)
Swelling of the macula which is located in the back of the eye which is responsible for central vision and seeing color.

Cataract is when your eye's natural lens becomes cloudy. Proteins in your lens break down and cause things to look blurry, hazy or less colorful. This is the most common cause of vision loss worldwide, but the good news is that they are treatable.
