Diabetic Eye Exam


Diabetic Eye Exam, Tampa, FL 

For individuals living with diabetes, regular eye exams are not just routine; they’re a crucial part of managing your health. At I-Care Optical, our experienced eye doctor Dr. Neil Patel, can identify early warning signs of diabetic eye disease during an eye exam and provide treatment to manage it effectively.  

What is diabetic eye disease?  

Diabetic eye disease refers to a range of eye problems that can occur as a complication of diabetes. This includes diabetic retinopathy, diabetic macular edema, cataracts, and glaucoma. Diabetic retinopathy occurs when high blood sugar levels damage blood vessels in the retina, causing them to leak fluid or bleed. It’s the most common cause of vision loss in people with diabetes and a leading cause of blindness in adults. 

Importance of regular diabetic eye exams  

Getting regular eye exams is crucial for detecting and treating diabetic eye disease early. Typically, these diseases have no symptoms until significant damage has already occurred and complications have developed. Regular check-ups allow Dr. Patel to closely monitor your eye health and take immediate action if any issues are found.  

Diagnosing & managing diabetic eye disease    

When you come in for an eye exam, Dr. Patel will look for signs of diabetic eye disease using the latest diagnostic technologies. If any issues are detected, he will develop a personalized management plan to manage the disease and protect your vision. This plan may include regular monitoring, lifestyle changes, medication, or in some cases, referral to a specialist.
