Diabetic Eye Disease Treatment

What is Diabetic Eye Disease?
Those with diabetes are naturally at risk for developing certain eye diseases, like diabetic retinopathy. This condition forms when high blood sugar damages the blood vessels in your retina — an important part of your eye that detects light and sends signals to your brain. This damage can cause irreversible vision loss and even blindness if left untreated. At Lowcountry Eye Care, our doctors can detect the earliest signs of diabetic eye disease and help you take steps now to protect your vision for the future.
Early Detection and
Management of Diabetic Eye Disease
You may have retinal damage from diabetic retinopathy and not even know it, as symptoms usually don’t occur until you experience vision loss. Regular diabetic eye exams are critical when it comes to protecting your sight, and our friendly doctors at Lowcountry Eye Care have the experience and technology needed to detect this condition early. If we do see any of its signs, we’ll work with you to develop a treatment plan to prevent any lasting damage to your eyes and vision.
Cutting Edge Dry Eye Technology
During our comprehensive eye exams, we take detailed scans of your eyes with state-of-the-art diagnostic technology, like our Optos retinal imager and our optical coherence tomography (OCT) device. This helps us gain a complete understanding of your retinal health. In fact, the same technology can catch diabetes itself even before your general practitioner could! With years of experience helping patients manage diabetic eye disease, we know what to look for in order to catch the condition early, keep your vision clear, and prevent further damage to your eyes.
If we detect the signs of diabetic retinopathy, you can rest assured you’re in good hands. Our experienced doctors will personalize a comprehensive treatment plan based on your unique needs to slow the progression of the disease and protect your vision now and for the years ahead of you.
