Reading the latest Macular Disease Foundation newsletter reveals some interesting facts.
With statistics as confronting as these, we recommend an annual eye exam with dilated pupils and a 3D OCT eye scan to monitor your eyes for early signs of retinopathy. The earlier we detect any changes, the better the outcome.
We recommend liaising with your diabetes educator, dietician, or GP to better understand the risk factors that impact your eye health. Simple changes in diet and lifestyle play a huge role in preventing vision loss from diabetic retinopathy.
The message is simple, have a regular eye exam as recommended by your doctor and optometrist to ensure any impact on your vision is minimised.
We look forward to seeing you in our clinic soon!
