November is Diabetic Eye Disease Month

Posted on November 10th, 2016 by clvc

Are you experiencing any of the following vision problems?

• Blurry or double vision

• Floaters or dark patches in your vision

• Difficulty seeing well at night

Diabetic retinopathy is the most common diabetic eye disease and a leading cause of blindness in American adults.  It’s important to keep blood glucose levels as near to normal as possible to prevent retina damage.

Don’t wait for symptoms. Often there are no symptoms in the early stages of the disease, nor is there any pain.  Be sure to have a comprehensive dilated eye exam at least once a year.  If you notice any changes in your vision, call your eye doctor immediately.
