Special Care for Our High-Risk Patients
We know the strain that diabetes puts on your visual well-being. That’s why we offer diabetic eye exams with an emphasis on ocular health. Our primary objective is identifying eye diseases associated with diabetes and managing their onset as early as possible.
Diabetic eye exams are similar to standard exams but with more emphasis on examining the retina. All of our eye doctors at Simcoe Optometric Clinic are highly trained in diabetic eye care. We take the time to know for sure how diabetes is affecting your vision.
How Often Do You Need a Diabetic Eye Exam?
Regardless of your age or other health conditions, you should visit your optometrist regularly if you have diabetes. Diabetic eye disease is detectable to your optometrist before any symptoms are present, so even if you are not having any trouble with your eyes, routine eye care is very important. Your optometrist will let you know how often is best for you, but anywhere from every 6 months to every 24 months may be recommended. This is the best way to maintain ocular health despite the disease.
