How are diabetic eye diseases diagnosed?

Diabetic eye diseases are diagnosed during comprehensive diabetic eye exams. These exams can not only detect early signs of eye diseases, but they can also detect and diagnose diabetes, even before your family doctor can.

At Ideal Optical, we have invested in advanced diagnostic technology to find even the smallest signs of diabetic eye diseases. If you have been diagnosed with type 1 or 2 diabetes, it is crucial that you see us for regular diabetic eye exams.

Preventing diabetic eye disease

Regular eye exams as well as controlling your blood sugar levels and blood pressure can protect you from the damaging effects of diabetic eye disease. However, you cannot always prevent diabetic retinopathy. Early diagnosis and treatment are essential if you have been diagnosed with DR or DME.


Even if it has been a while since your last eye appointment, please call us to book a diabetic eye exam today.
